One of the nice things about my line of work (pastor / freelance webdesigner) is that I get to work from anywhere. Most of my friends know that if they want to find me, there is a good chance I am at the nearby Starbucks. I’m a fairly social person so I like to be in locations where there are other people. But sometimes, I need to find some peace and quiet and lose all the distractions. The picture above is my “new” work space in my basement. I used to have all kinds of stuff on my desk and on that shelf you see. I had a ton of books, file shelves and other office type stuff. But, yesterday I organized my desk again and am going with a new de-cluttered approach. I love it. I still feel like there is too much stuff on my desk but I need the lamp and most everything that is there.
I am starting a new short-term contract job with a design studio so I’ll be working from home in the peace and quiet more than normal. Plus, its getting colder outside so there is less motivation to leave the house.
Oh, and I didn’t show you what it looks like behind my chair. That’s a whole other story. But, the nice thing is, when I am working I don’t have to look at the mess of my kids toys that are back there.
