"The environment is everything that isn't me.”
Have you ever planned a great vacation only to arrive at your destination on a cold, rainy, windy day?
The outdoor weather can take a beautiful trip and turn it into a dreadful experience.
So, too, can the 'indoor weather' in your workspace.
Take a look around your office. Is your view just of a computer screen and blank wall or do you see things that motivate and inspire you?
When you look at your desk do you feel pleased with what you see or is it cluttered with piles you wish someone would clean up?
Is there good light and a nice temperature or do you need to put on a sweater just to sit at your desk?
Your work environment can have a huge impact on your productivity. When you walk into your office, it should feel welcoming and energizing to you.
If it doesn't, make a plan this week to change it. Add some fun paint, a new piece of art, a motivational poster, some plants or even better lighting. Pull out the books on the shelf and dust behind them. Toss the ones you'll never read again. Shake up the energy in your space!
Just a few small changes can make a huge difference in how much you get done in a day.
Win the day!
