Beginning, particularly, with my home office desk.
(I only “own” half of that office — I’m focusing on my desk now teehee.)
I mean, I know it’s not that messy (my mum’s desk is a lot messier!) but it’s no longer inspiring. Nothing is in its right place and it’s a far cry from what it looked like during the first days of January. Observe:
I read just this afternoon an article that one simple trick in boosting your productivity is this: a workspace that inspires you. Isn’t that simple and wonderful? But at the same time, it’s quite hard to accomplish (at least for me). How will I ever find the time to reorganise and give my humble office space a makeover? I had printed a couple of wall art printables several months ago but still haven’t found time to frame and hang them. Now what?
To find some inspiration, I browsed what else but Pinterest and looked for beautiful desk inspirations that are also doable:
Here are the things I’m planning to do (and need to make time for!):
1. Rearrange my office furniture. Put the desk against the wall and window to maximise space (and lighting).
2. I want to repaint my generic desk, which is a boring grey, but painting entails a lot of time and effort and I’m not sure if I’m up for that. I want to, though.
3. Look or buy a narrow shelf so that my things are not so crowded. Ideally, it will be where I will be putting my printer, too, so that my limited desk space does not become even more limited.
4. If budget allows, buy a new (preferably pink or teal) office chair. The one I’m using now is an old dining chair since my mum borrowed mine when her old one broke.
What else? Hmm. I’ll keep you posted!
