Workspace of the Week: Impromptu workspace

This week’s Workspace of the Week is ImageryIsLife’s morning workspace:

Many of us use laptops as our primary computers, yet we tend to tie them to our desks and forget they’re mobile. When I saw this workspace in the Unclutterer Flickr Pool, I unplugged my machine and took to my patio, too. The crisp morning air, a stiff cup of coffee, and a change of scenery did my productivity wonders. I couldn’t see a stack of papers waiting to be filed or hear the whir of our home’s server. I just sat and wrote and took advantage of my laptop and this fall morning. If you can manage, I recommend a change of scenery today to help boost your productivity. Thank you, ImageryIsLife, for submitting your picture to our Flickr Pool and for the motivation to take advantage of impromptu workspaces.

Want to have your own workspace featured in Workspace of the Week? Submit a picture to the Unclutterer flickr pool. Check it out because we have a nice little community brewing there. Also, don’t forget that workspaces aren’t just desks. If you’re a cook, it’s a kitchen; if you’re a carpenter, it’s your workbench.

    Yesterday, I was feeling antsy in my cube and, instead of checking Facebook for the millionth time, I unplugged my laptop, turned my chair around, and put my feet up on and extra chair. Just facing the other way and feeling free was helpful, even without a lovely park bench to move to!

    I’ll have to post a pic there when I get a chance. I work from home, so I sit in my sun room most of the time. All windows open and breeze going. SO peaceful.

    I would love to do that, but as my disease progresses, I fall down more and I fell knocking my laptop over. You couldn’t see half of the screen. But a friend of mine (he and I grew up together) brought me a big screen which is now hooked up to my laptop. It makes it a bit harder to write and I can’t travel around as this wonderful post suggests, but I can she your beautiful blog so much easier. I’m heading over to sign up as I want all of these tips in my inbox and on my dear friend’s BIG screen! Thanks for your blog. It is wonderful.

    Yep, a simple but great idea that we tend to forget ;P
    Unfortunately my laptop’s battery is broken, so I always need an electric outlet…
