Choose Your Workspace Deliberately. (The Creativity Explorer. Episode 126)

This week I want to share some creativity inspiration around work and island.


1) I just posted this on social media and thought it would be relevant for this newsletter too:

“A swan inspired chair, in a earth inspired dome, on top of a bird’s nest inspired house on a perfect little island – that is where I sit and work.

Chose your workspace deliberately.”

And to quote Buckminster Fuller – the man who is famous for promoting dome buildings:

 “When I am working on a problem, I never think about beauty… but when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.”


My question to you this week is: Where do you work?




Which brings me to my other island: Ideas Island (also in Stockholm)

The current Ideas Island season is in full swing and I am starting to get emails and photos from this season’s guests.

Here are a few from the guest Julius that I hope will inspire you to apply to stay at Ideas Island, or to go and find another creative place to work on your most important creative projects:


– “Sometimes we need an Island to see clearly.”

– “I’m a travel journalist for more than ten years and did dozens of amazing journeys – but the inspiration and joy that Ideas Island brought is beyond comparison.”

– “I don’t have the words to describe what that journey meant to me, meant to us, three friends. Actually, I still don’t know how to put it. But I will, one day. And it will not be a travel feature; it won’t be a newspaper article at all. I want to bring the reader to Ideas Island. I want to really show him that spirit. On the first day, it seemed, that there was something waving at us, from the bushes, through the trees, with branch arms and leaf hands. That ghost, we found, was no illusion. It’s still waving, here, now, everywhere.”


And some of his photos:
