Productivity Noise Creativity

lightbulbAre you in need of some creativity? How does  the  hum  of coffeehouse chatter in the background sound?   I recently found a site called Coffitivity and this site  streams the awesome sounds of a coffee house right to your computer. Studies say a little noise can bring out the creativity in you and make you more productive.

Venturing Out To be Productive

The other day, I just couldn't get my creative juices flowing. I had some tasks that I needed to complete and needed to get out of the office to clear my head.  I decided to have lunch at Zoe’s Kitchen and brought my Chromebook along for the ride. The atmosphere was very busy since it was a Friday afternoon.  The radio played great upbeat songs overhead and there was a steady hum of conversations in the air. There was a list of things I wanted to complete, including finishing up some notes for this article.

I found a table in a nice little corner of the restaurant and  sat down for lunch while working on my to-do list. It was very easy to let the words flow while sitting there.  I even took out my idea journal and jotted down a few new ideas that came along. Before long I had completed most of my to-do list and honestly I lost track of time. It’s easy to lose track of time when you are letting your creative juices flow.

I spent a total of three hours at Zoe’s and I can say they were  three very productive hours.  I wasn’t bothered by the conversations and activity in the restaurant. I simply got into my zone and the creativity flowed. While I was there I noticed the other patrons working. None of them seems to be distracted at all.

It is a good idea to get out the office from time to time.  Visit a local cafe or coffee house  and let those creative juices flow.  The atmosphere will do you good. You never know what you may come up with.
