Goldilocks Syndrome

I’m really picky about my workspace.  Don’t confuse this with ‘organized’: Mrs. Caffeinated will be the first to tell you I’m anything but.

No, it’s a little different than that.  I can’t just write or code anywhere.  It has to be quiet, but I also have to have access to  music, should I want it.  It shouldn’t be too bright, but not too dark, either, with no glare!  And don’t even get me started on temperature (I’d rather be too cool than too warm, but not cold).  Basically, I have to have everything “just right!”  But who wouldn’t want the perfect working conditions?

As for clutter, well, we’re still moving in, but my office is almost put-together.  I’m still searching for the right balance of stuff-to-space among the boxes and other things I should probably donate or otherwise rid myself of.  I have my treasured writing books and fiction favorites on a shelf nearby, for inspiration.  (Some of my less favorites sit on the bottom shelf.  Also for inspiration, or more like determination, I suppose.)

I’m going to get it right, and soon.  November is only a week away!

What do you look for in an ideal working space?

  1. That sounds like my type of workspace though I would have a few additions. I love a workspace that’s functional and organised. Also it has been generously piled with the decor and things I love. I’m a very visually motivate person and the old office works desk just won’t cut it for me.

    I know I’m picky but I know that when I have my workspace the way I love it, I’ll turn out to be just that much more productive.

    Really liking your blog so far by the way. :)

  2. Thanks for the kind words! Decor is going to happen in here soon, but I’m afraid that unpacking has gotten the better of me, haha.

    I totally agree with you, too, about increasing productivity. When everything feels right, there’s almost a synergy effect you couldn’t bottle or buy if you wanted to.
