Ideal desk location: The properly placed desk offers you security and strength while inspiring you to achieve your career goals. The power position is diagonally opposite from the door with your back facing a solid wall.
In this position you have a commanding view of the room and door. You also have an opportunity to view an inspiring artwork or a pleasant view outside. If possible, avoid placing a desk where your back faces a large window (drains your strength), you sit in direct line with the door (causes agitation), or you face a solid wall right in front of you (negatively affects your concentration and creativity).
Clutter: An organized office is the key for productivity and efficiency. Clutter stagnates energy flow in your office as well as progress of your projects. Clutter also creates undue stress and an out-of-control feeling. A thriving career requires a well-organized work space.
Your achievements: Displaying your personal and professional accomplishments and successful projects such as collage diplomas, professional certificates and awards, can boost your confidence and self-worth. Conversely, remove items from unsuccessful projects as they deplete your energy and create a sense of inadequacy.
Color: Choose colors that support your career needs. Green symbolizes a new opportunity and growth and is a great color if you are starting up a new business. You can inject red as an accent color in your office to motivate and increase your action. Yellow and orange can bring liveliness and cheerfulness to your work environment. Blue and lavender can soothe your work stress. Earthy brown creates a sense of stability.
