Look around. Is your home office helping you be as productive as you could be? Do you feel comfortable in your work space? Does it reflect your personality and work style? For many home business owners, these questions might seem trivial, or secondary – what’s most important is getting the work done. True; but by really reflecting on your office space, and thinking about how best to incorporate the elements of organization, fit, and blend into this space, you improve your odds of achieving – and maintaining – success.
Most people who have a home business grow into their office space. As they expand, they don’t take the time get organized, usually because they understandably are so focused on getting the work done that has to get done as quickly as possible now. Many times, though, when home office owners have a moment to come up for air, they realize that their workspace is actually making them less productive, because there is no rhyme or reason to many of the furnishings and overall design of the space.
In these situations, it’s helpful to find an office furniture and design firm that can come to your space, really look at it, and help design a new working flow based on what you do, what you want, and what you need. This process is really about getting organized – putting everything in its place and making sure there is a place for everything. In the long run, these efforts save time and money, and help you become much more efficient.
