Let’s face it: many of us spend hours and hours each day sitting at the same desk, plunking away at a keyboard, surrounded by the same stuff, writing, drawing, talking on the phone, doodling, daydreaming, and sometimes actually working. Is there one of us who doesn’t wish his or her workspace was a little bit more flashy or better organized? We can’t all have a corner office on a high floor with a view, but I think it’s true that sitting down to a well-organized and attractive workspace puts one in a better state of mind for work – especially if you’re self-employed, as I am. It helps you feel that yes, you are a grown-up, with impeccable taste and mad skillz to boot.
