Business Travel: does it inspire you?
Last week there was an article in the New York Times about business travelers who found inspiration for their current work while on business trips. The idea is simple: who gets ideas when they sit in a drab little cubicle? People need external stimulation:
Creative inspiration often strikes at the most unexpected times — in the shower, while out for a walk or lying on the sofa — and with depressingly less frequency at the office when workers are actually paid to generate it. But business travel can be fertile ground for discovering creative ideas for work or even a new business, many travelers say.
While I don’t spend most of my time sitting in a cubicle, and while I do find a lot of airport architecture to be pretty amazing, business travel is not usually creative time for me.
Is it creative time for you?
