Book a Think Week Cabin for a Tech Free 7 Day Detox

A Think Week cabin getaway is advocated and practiced by Bill Gates to increase focus and boost creative thinking. Go solo for a 7 day digital detox in an off-grid cabin for the ultimate reset. 



What is a 'Think Week?'

A Think Week is a dedicated period of time to take a break from your regular work routine to focus on strategic planning, problem-solving and brainstorming new ideas. 

A Think Week is usually a solo escape with no technology. You seclude yourself in an off-grid cabin (preferably in nature) to minimise distractions and stimulate creativity.



What are the benefits of a Think Week?

The main benefits of a think week are increased focus and a boost in creative thinking, but it also provides 

πŸ”• Deep focus and attention with no distractions 

🌀 Reflection and clarity on goals and opportunities 

πŸ’‘ Enhances problem solving and creative thinking

πŸ’ͺ Increased productivity and decision-making  

πŸ“‰ Reduces stress and promotes mental wellbeing 



How does Bill Gates Think Week work?

The premise of a think week is simple, but it can be hard in a busy world to find the space away from technology. At Unplugged we make it easy.

Why does Bill Gates do a Think Tank?

Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, is well-known for his annual Think Week retreats, during which he disconnects from technology and spends at an off-grid woodland cabin. This process enables him to reflect on the current state of his business and industry, as well as to generate new ideas for future innovation.

Think Weeks are used to provide a fresh perspective on complex problems, break through creative blockages, and generate innovative ideas. By creating an environment that fosters deep thinking and reflection, individuals can create more clarity, develop new insights, and find unique solutions to complex problems.

A Think Week is a period of time, typically a week, that you set aside to disconnect from the distractions of daily life and focus solely on thinking, brainstorming, and planning. During this time, you typically disconnect from your regular sources of information and stimulation, such as email and social media.

Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, is well-known for his annual Think Week retreats. Bill books in two 7 day detoxes, during which he disconnects from technology and spends a week reading papers and proposals written by employees and other experts. This process enables him to reflect on the current state of his business and industry, as well as to generate new ideas for future innovation.

Unplugged Think Weeks are at different cabins each month, depending on date availability. You can find out which cabins and dates are available here.
