My workspace is small, compact and cosy. It doesn’t fit me completely, cause it hasn’t got a landscape-skyline view where I can rest my eyes, in fact no view at all, which it clearly not optimum. But two things makes a major difference for me: A) It is there, in my apartment and B) it is functional. It’s not a pile of stuff reminding me of the stuff I’m not getting done. It’s not trash place for the stuff I don’t know whereelse to put. It’s simply a small desk of nice wood, I love that old wood, with a bulletin board. On there I put pictures of stuff I like, and of desireable things or situations, that ressonates with me. Or little textbites that makes me feel good and supports my goals.. or whatever I’m heading for.
If I could pick out any workspace I wanted, like in a catalog, I’d pick a wide and spacious, extensive, commodious and comfy place.. A New York loft-like place, who wouldn’t… where I could spread out all my papers and drafts, and still be able to twirl and lay flat on the floor next to it. And walk around scratching my forehead while thinking
I arranged my tiny workspace when I got back from one of my travels. It’s newly established, but the fact that it is there and its functional, makes me more productive. I used to think that placing a workspace in a 2 bedroom apartment, was waste of space. That I’d be sitting at the dinnertable anyway. But I love having a place, though small, where I can store my work, and put it away for later, while Im eating. And even though my place is tiny, I love having multiple options. For example should I have dinner in my kitchen or in the living room. Should I work in bed today, at the dinnertable or at my tiny workplace with my bulletin-board-reminders in my face..? Or should I go to my favorite cafe?… Suddenly its not a question of whether I should get some stuff done, it’s about where I wanna go and do it. Love that.
