Many of us work at least part of the time from our home office but have you given much thought to the functionality and ‘vibe’ of this work space? If you’re spending any amount of time here at all it is worth a little bit of time and organization to make sure that it is as functional as your corporate space, and maybe even more comfortable! Here are some tips to help ensure you’re as productive as you can be:
- Dedicated Space – make sure you have a space that is just yours, and just for business. The kids can do their homework at the dining room table.
- Organization – invest in the organizational pieces that make work easier and more streamlined. File folders, bookshelves, cubbies can all make a huge difference in the functionality of a space, and make small spaces easier to work with.
- Create Your Zen – your home office should reflect your unique personality and have the colors and touches that inspire you and feed your energy.
- Eliminate Obstacles – if there is anything that you hate about your office, change it. The printer, wireless router, computer, software, sticky drawer, less than ideal layout – all of these things can, and should be, fully functional so your office is working for you instead of against you.
You may not have the I.T. or administrative staff of a CEO but that doesn’t mean that you can’t work like one. If there is anything that is holding you back, anything that detracts from your productivity and success, let us know. We can help you create the office that inspires you, supports your dreams and facilitates your goals.
