How To Create a Workspace That Motivates

Presented By: EJ Cooksey | 1/19/2008 10:04:00 PM

Step 1. Determine what motivates you.

Are you motivated by money? Sales numbers? Praise? What about success quotes or inspirational words? Are you motivated to save enough money to take your family on that amazing vacation you’ve been dreaming about or are you looking to purchase a luxury item? Determine what motivates you first and foremost. You can accomplish this by asking yourself a few questions.

What do you like best about your job?
What aspect of your business fills you with the most joy?
What aspects of your life fill you with the most joy?
What are your goals? Why are they your goals?

Step 2. Make your workspace attractive to you.

For some this may mean bright colors and clean lines. Other people prefer a more Zen-like feel and choose neutral colors and minimal embellishments. What is your style? Take it and bring it into your workspace.

Step 3. Make your workspace personal.

If you’re inspired by Benjamin Franklin success quotes “Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.” Then post them. Hang pictures of your family or calming scenes. If you’re saving for a vacation, perhaps a picture of that location posted in your workspace will help motivate you on those difficult days. Motivated by money, post your current sales and your sales goals where you can see them at all times.

Step 4. Reduce clutter.

Organize, organize, organize. Clutter is a time stealer. If you know where everything is, and everything has a place – off of your desktop – then you’re headed in the right direction. De clutter your desktop by investing in a file cabinet or two. De clutter your computer desktop by organizing your work into files and storing them in larger files. For example you could have a business folder and within that large folder you could have client folder or project folder. Each sub folder would then have all of the documents and relevant files stored right there for easy access.

Step 5. Add music, scents, and plants.

Make your workplace as pleasing as possible. You don’t want it to be so relaxing that it puts you to sleep but you do want to feel inspired to work.

Step 6. An ergonomically designed workspace is a productive one.

Make sure your desk, desk chair, and computer keyboard are all adjusted to be comfortable for you. You can’t get much done if your back is killing you from a poorly designed chair or you’re getting carpal tunnel from a misplaced keyboard. Take the time to invest in comfortable office furniture – your business, body, and bottom line will reward you for the efforts.
