The Spartan Workspace Essentials
Our focus this month on the Spartan Journal is the Workspace. April is the moth of renewal, rebirth, fresh starts, spring cleaning- a fitting time to roll up those sleeves and create a more productive working environment for yourself. Here are a few things we believe create a good space to get things done.
A PLACE FOR WORK
A desk, a table, a counter. An area to sit that makes you feel centered and focused and ready to check some things off that list.
A PLACE FOR THOUGHT
A comfortable chair, a couch by the window.
A place for daydreaming, creative pondering, letting your brain meander off the narrow path into fertile areas which foster large ideas and grand vision.
A PLACE FOR INSPIRATION
If you are visual, perhaps it is a pinboard/moodboard.
If you need to organize your ideas it could be a big white writing space with lists, charts, and sketches.
THE RIGHT TOOLS FOR THE JOB
In addition to your computer, create an arsenal of your favorite tools: paper, notebook, scissors, etc.
Throw away the clutter. It takes time away from your day to have to dig for what you need.
Pair it down, get organized, invest in tools that work well and are a pleasure to use.
