Coming up with great ideas in the shower is one thing. But ruminating over business problems while you’re eating dinner or trying to play with your kids isn’t so fun. Unfortunately, telling yourself “don’t think about work” is about as effective as telling yourself “don’t think about a polar bear.” What just came to mind?
So I’m over at Fast Company this week writing about other suggestions in “How to stop obsessing about work when you’re not there.” I’d appreciate a read and a share. If you have other ideas for taking your mind off problems that can’t be immediately solved, I welcome those too!
