Where’s the Place That Inspires You?

For most people, geography impacts inspiration. There are extraordinary places on the planet that spark our imaginations and light up our creativity. The problem is, most people never think about “location” when it comes to creativity.  Trust me – high performing creative people know the places that inspire them. For novelist Stephen King, it’s Durham, Maine, where he grew up in the 60’s. For poet Langston Hughes, it was the jazz clubs of Harlem. For Toy Inventor A.C. Gilbert, it’s the train line in Connecticut.  For me, it’s the area around Donner Lake, near Lake Tahoe, here in California. It’s the most beautiful place on the earth, and my favorite place to be.

What about you? What place inspires your creativity? Wherever it is, get there. Schedule more time there. Let the location seep into you and inspire you to do greater things.

Nothing heals the day to day grind like a change of location. And when that change of location is the most inspiring place you can think of, something creative is bound to happen.

What’s your most inspiring location?
