However, when you ask people where they go when they really need to get something done, you'll rarely hear them say it's the office.
If you ask, you'll usually get one of three kinds of responses: A place, a moving object, or a time.
They'll say their house, their back porch, an extra bedroom they've converted into a home office, a library, the coffee shop down the street, the basement. Or they'll say their car, or a train, or a plane -- basically, during their commute. Or they'll say really early in the morning, really late at night, or on the weekend. In other words, when no one else is around to bother them.
I don't blame people for not wanting to be at the office. I blame the office. The modern office has become an interruption factory. You can't get work done at work anymore.http://www.cnn.com/2010/OPINION/12/05/fried.office.work/index.html
