I am sitting by my desk, getting ready to get organized for today's chores - facing me are three large windows, making this room a cozy and warm part of the now cold outdoors. I am overjoyed in seeing squirrels play, birds trying to make ends meet and trees all around swaying in the morning breeze. All in all this is an exceptionally pleasant view - a view that makes me want to sit by my desk and a view which will make even the most dreaded work days pleasurable and a view which helps in achieving my daily goals. I know am lucky!
I believe that a work place should not be a cubicle with fluorescent light cheating your body’s senses; it should not be a cold space without personality and it certainly should not be a place that will not inspire. Too many of us sit behind desks each day, facing a partition wall – just consider what this does to our thoughts?
The short of it that our work space – a space where we spend a big part of our lives – should be inviting, pleasant, well lit and full of personality. It must be comfortable and inspiring even if it makes you lose concentration every so often, as when you stop for a minute or two in order to smile at those mischievous squirrels, you are really recharging yourself and are so much more capable of being productive.
I am lucky – now I can go back to work!
