My New Secret Weapon for Creativity and Productivity

I struggled to get the creative juices flowing pretty often. When this happens my productivity goes through the floor. The two are pretty related for me since I can’t get anything done if I can’t come up with ideas for blog posts, articles, or products.

This is something I’ve struggled with as long as I’ve been working online. Even worse is when I have an idea but I can’t figure out where to get started with writing!

I’ve been searching high and low for a solution for this problem and I found it two days ago… in my own backyard!

I had been struggling to get working on a new product I’m working on with a friend and it had been way too long since I wrote a new blog post. It was really sunny outside so I thought I would go outside and think. I brought my netbook with me in case I came up with an idea. Within 10 minutes of sitting outside I already had a great idea for a blog post and had a running outline of my new product in my head!

The mix of the sun and the change of scenery did wonders for me. I’ve been taking my netbook outside any time  I hit a block and I’m coming up with great ideas and getting MORE work done. How cool is that?!?

What is your secret weapon for creativity and productivity?

Note: The picture is from my backyard. I got a new camera recently and have been taking a lot of pictures for my blogs, Squidoo lenses, and just for fun. It is another thing that really gets me thinking.

  1. I agree a change of scenery really helps me too. For some reason, though, I often struggle and stay put instead of just going for a walk or something!

  2. Sounds like a great way to work! I live in Hawaii, so the weather is perfect for this pretty much year-round. Unfortunately I’m stuck to a desktop… I think my next computer will have to be a laptop, because I’m dying to try this seeing as it made such a noticeable difference with you.
