On surroundings

When you feel unfocused or stuck in a pattern, make a change. One of the changes you can make is in your surroundings. When the scenery is different, your state of mind may also be different. In your own home, you are much more comfortable and unfocused on work. That’s perfectly logical—home isn’t your workplace, even though it is! If you can’t get your mind on track, take the effort to get up and move elsewhere. Show up to work. Even if showing up to work just means taking a walk and then returning to your desk refreshed.
