Last Monday I posted something a bit whimsical about working outside. Today I thought I’d post something on the same topic that might make some more straightforward sense.
One of the main reasons I’ve been working outside a bit is because we don’t really have a lot of space, so I don’t have a specific place where I can work. I’ve been finding that outside in the garden (or in the carport, looking out into the garden) can be quite productive. I also find that moving between a number of different spaces (which often happen to be outside) can help me break my work up into sections. I might start off in the garden, writing a list of all the things I need to do for the day (or week), then move to the carport to get some rough notes written down for a project, then go to a café or a park or a library in the neighbourhood to turn the notes into something presentable. I think changing spaces for each stage helps to set a rhythm and create a new focus for each stage.
