Here at Lifehacker, we've often encouraged switching up your working environment to spark creativity and prevent burnout. Even taking a few days each month to work in a new place can benefit you greatly.

I've been doing a lot of this. But I've found the only work I can do in a coffee shop is: creative writing, reading short articles or interesting reads (business, life, happiness, etc.), talking to friends, sending e-mails. Nothing that requires a lot of focus or that has a time constraint.
Last summer, I'd go for a morning walk, take the bus downtown and work/blog/read/daydream in Starbucks for 20 to 60 minutes before work. This would leave me feeling energized and my thinking cap would already be on. And I'd probably buy coffee twice a week. Other times, (since I was on a tight budget) I'd bring my Starbucks thermos and fill it with hot water and honey (and sometimes bring my own tea bag--they charge you $1 for it otherwise). It warms you up and costs next to nothing.
There's a hot new book making the rounds in the academic world: Presumed Incompetent. The book addresses the predicament that women of color high up in the ivory tower find themselves in -- a predicament few of us really know.
My experience as a young girl of what the term "work ethic" really meant began with a fib. I was 14, growing up in southern California. My mother had divorced when I was 5, left to raise me
Tolulope Falae's insight:
I don't think young people my age are hungry enough. My parents came here after they married and while I know the hope is to make life better and easier for the coming generation, it may handicap us. I've seen many immigrants come to America with Masters and PhD degrees, with no degrees and work their behind off. Sometimes taking jobs they are overqualified for. I've always admired that.
We millenials are missing that. We haven't had to walk miles for water. We've lived very convenient lives. Even those of us that come from middle-class families--we have iphones but can't pay our bills on time. At the moment I'm trying to develop that hunger. That drive that runs after success and doesn't stop until my goal is acheived.
