Public is one of my favorite words, especially when it comes to creative workspaces and getting stuff done. Some people need to be alone when they work, but I am not that kind of person. When I need a fresh burst of creativity for a particular project, or have a blog post that needs finishing (or starting), I have to get out of the house. My favorite place to work is the local coffee shop.

Here's my formula for a creative, productive workspace... natural light + good coffee + other humans.

{ L I G H T } A good window is a must. It doesn’t matter if it’s cloudy or sunny out... natural light works wonders for creativity.

{ C O F F E E } Coffee, like natural light, is another non-negotiable. All of my best work is done with coffee in hand.

{ H U M A N S } Rather than finding the presence of other people distracting, the movement and noise helps me think better and accomplish more.
