Or lunch, coffee, happy hour — whatever you like. The point is to connect with someone (a friend, coworker, mentor, etc.) you don’t see every day.
Working — and doing practically everything else — from home has taken a toll on our creativity as a whole, according to a study by researchers at Microsoft. They suggest a large reason for that is our reduced number of social interactions and fewer opportunities to converse, and even disagree, with others.
So the next time you feel less than creative, make plans to share a meal with someone you’ve been meaning to reach out to. You never know what ideas you’ll walk away with.
