What kind of relationship do you have with your desk? Most people that have desks, love them. Despite the growing trend of expecting workers to work on the go, we humans like our desks and can easily make one where ever we happen to be.
Desks can hold books, notes, calendars and of course computers…almost all that a person would need to do their chosen work and communicate effectively with others.
Some creative minds like having things visible as they never know how stray thoughts can fit together. Others like their desk to be organized so nothing distracts them from what they are doing at the time. I have read that people with messier desks are more open to new ideas. No matter what type of person you are, is seems that if when your workspace is in sync with you, you are a happier more productive individual.
In an office environment, we tend to think of the desk as protection between us and others than intrude our office. For some, just knowing they have a desk, brings comfort. For others it is their home away from home. To most people it is their workspace and they need it to retreat from endless meetings, unrealistic deadlines, constant interruptions, and the time-consuming supervision of others.
Grab that little piece of chocolate stashed in the top drawer and close your eyes for a moment. Ahhh…now THAT’S what desks are really for.
