When we want to improve our productivity and output, we frequently overlook the environment where we do our work.
We may be undisciplined about keeping structure in our environments. We may notice when we don't have space to put our papers, so we push them to the side. We can't find a pen. The computer "desktop" looks no better, and even a spotlight search can't locate our documents. But, a well-organised workspace can give us focus, energy, and a clear mind.
This is your place of work, even if it is a home office or a shared space. As much as possible, treat it so.
People are having real success by tricking their brains into thinking their office is for serious work. Calibrate your workspace to serve you best:
If you have too much clutter, try some Marie Kondo-ing. This should only be done when it's necessary. Afterwards, try to maintain what you've built.
When your space is cleared, ask yourself what kind of workspace you need.
Ensure to give yourself a lamp, a charging station for your phone, and a place to put a drink.
Once in a while, block off a day to try and get back to inbox zero in your digital and physical workspaces.
Sift through the clutter that's built up in your office. Pre-sort your mail. At the very least, try to start every Monday with an empty inbox. This will help to keep you running without getting overburdened.
Once you have a new and workable workspace, consider what will consistently inspire you. Some enjoy famous smart-sounding quotes or motivational videos.
When you feel bored or disinterested, look for the little sources of energy you've created that will give you constant inspiration to work productively.
A steady routine can give your brain the signal that you need to shift to a working mode: for example, every morning when you enter your workspace, flip on the desk lamp or Bluetooth switch, then pull out your chair and sit down with intentional posture.
When you end your workday, focus on a routine so that your brain knows it's time to switch off. Ensure to leave a clean and tidy office before you turn off the lights.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
