We all have those days that are just duds. Usually Mondays, right? If things aren’t perfectly balanced, I have a tendency to get nothing done (unless I have a lot of pressure to get something done, of course).
So, just for fun, here’s what I need to be productive.
A pretty, clean desk
If my desk is messy and isn’t visually appealing, I can’t get anything done. I get too distracted by all the stuff around me. The first thing I do is clean it off, if it’s not already clean.
The sun, and lack thereof, greatly affects my mood. I try to get a lot done while the sun is shining, as I know if it’s cloudy or rainy I’m going to be much less productive.
Up to date technology
I can’t deal without having a nice laptop. I’ve never been able to deal, even before I started blogging.
I’m not kidding.
TV in the background
Yes, I do half-watch certain kinds of shows. I obviously can’t do this with Game of Thrones (because three episodes later I’m just confused), but I can do it with sitcoms and family dramas and such. I am by nature a multitasker, so I do this while I work.
Pretty office supplies
A nice notebook, some Le Pens, and stuff like that. I’m surprised at how much paper I use, but I’ve always had a tendency to do better with handwritten ideas.
A to do list
No online calendars for me. I do sync it with google calendar, but for the most part, I use my Day Designer.
The ability to swivel
If my chair was stationary, I would get restless and unhappy.
