Why You Should Work From a Coffee Shop, Even When You Have an Office

Why You Should Work From a Coffee Shop, Even When You Have an Office | BUSINESS and more |

Here at Lifehacker, we've often encouraged switching up your working environment tospark creativity and prevent burnout. Even taking a few days each month to work in a new place can benefit you greatly. Here, entrepreneur Wesley Verhoeve explains the benefits of his favorite non-office space: the coffee shop.


While team Family Records was in between offices in early 2012, we had 6 weeks to bridge until our new space was ready. During that time we were fortunate enough to be taken in as guests by awesome companies for stretches of time, and for the remainder we took over corners of coffee shops all over Brooklyn and Manhattan. The experience of working out of coffee shops was so positive that even after we moved into our new home, I made sure to get in a few "coffee shop days" each month. For carpal tunnel related reasons alone, I would not recommend working out of coffee shops every day, but here are some reasons why it might be great to try it for one or two days every month.

Martin Gysler's insight:

I do it once the week because it's a great way to be less disrupted by the computer and social media channels. This give me also the possibility to meet new people and I'm very creative at a public place.


And you what's your opinion?

Yes Robert, I totally agree with you. Today, I went to one of my favorite places (a brewery ... I do not like beer in particular, but I like this place for work). But I know, it's not for everyone ... ;-)

I've been working out of coffe shops for years and agree its a great setting...and the perks aren't bad either.

100 Reasons to Mind Map (RT @russeltarr)

100 Reasons to Mind Map (RT @russeltarr) | BUSINESS and more |

"Mind Map is an amazing tool that meets the multi-dimensional thinking and processing needs of today’s managers." 


P.K. Anokhin showed in ‘The Forming of Natural and Artificial Intelligence’ that the brain likes to work on the basis of association and it will connect every idea, memory or piece of information to tens, hundreds and even thousands of other ideas and concepts.


This is what a Mind Map does. Information is structured in a way that mirrors exactly how the brain functions – in a radiant rather than linear manner. A Mind Map literally ‘Maps’ out your thoughts, using associations, connections and triggers to stimulate further ideas. A Mind Map allows you to extract the ideas from your head and put them into something visible and structured.

7 Habits of Highly Effective SEOs | BUSINESS and more |

Do you want to be a successful SEO? Well who doesn’t, right?


After being in the SEO space for over 10 years I’ve had the privilege of meeting thousands of them. And just like any industry, only a small percentage of them are actually successful.


So it hit me… why are some of these SEOs good at what they do while others aren’t? And after thinking about it for a while, I realized that it came down to these 7 habits.


1. Effective SEOs practice it

It’s not hard to become a SEO. You can read it about online, you can buy a few books, and within weeks you’ll have the lingo down...
