Some people are naturally very cluttered while others try to take a very minimalist approach. Does your workspace reflect your personality?
You sit down to get some work done; maybe you're editing, answering emails, ordering products, watching tutorials, or all of the above. Let's assume that you're at home, in the zone, rather than at a coffee shop (unless that's where you always work). What's your space look like?
This week I thought it would be fun to engage in a little bit of show and tell. I thought that it would be interesting for readers to post a photo of their workspace in the comments below. The place where all the magic happens. Does your space look like a tornado just passed through or do you keep a sleek and squeaky clean modern vibe all the time? Are there notepads taped to the walls with to-do lists? When you sit down to get your work done, where do you go?
Now full disclosure, I did just move halfway across the country so my space is still fresh and new. I tend to keep my space simple and to the point. I am definitely a bit OCD when it comes to my desk. I want enough room for my keyboard and mouse plus my editing tablet all on the same desk at the same time. I'm left handed so I have my tablet on the left and I can still use the mouse with my right hand simultaneously. One drawer is enough to have my “extras” like pens and paper, USB drives, external hard drives, business cards, etc. I am definitely the type of person who makes to-do lists. I love notepads and writing things out, so those go in the drawer too.
I'm a desktop rather than a laptop type of guy; the simple at-home setup is pretty much where all of my work goes down. The desk looks nice enough, assembled by yours truly from Target. Having a space that I think looks great helps me de-stress and get things done in short order. When my space gets cluttered, I feel like I tend to start freaking out so I have found that simplicity works best for my work space.
What does your space look like? Take a photo and leave a comment below with the image. Make sure your photo is PG (be aware of what's on your walls, desk, etc). Whether your area looks crazy cluttered or super sleek, there is no judgment here. Show us where you make it all happen. What about your space, if anything, reflects your personality?
