Show me your WFH set up

Since we’re all currently in the middle of probably the biggest global crisis since World War 2, many folks in my social timeline are posting/sharing their work from home (WFH) pictures. Whenever I share mine, I always feel like I need to explain the tidiness of it all, because my workspace is one area in my life where I do try to keep things in place.

This picture was literally taken at the end of my morning session of work, during my first coffee break. I left the plate and the coffee cup in the picture to prove it.

Besides a few extra items on the desk (that are only here because I’m currently working from home, my battery powered screwdriver, two remotes needed for this office, my running headphones, a few charging adapters, and some extra batteries) this is how I prefer to keep my area of work at all times. I can’t abide an untidy work area, as any clutter that gathers up gets in my way and makes me less productive.

While the space around me not be as tidy (either my office, or currently the garage) I try to keep my desk as a bastion of clarity, almost like it’s a safe haven amongst the madness that is every day life.

What about you, are you a fellow ‘desk neat freak’ or do you feel your workspace should be as comfortable and/or chaotic as your life is. Hit me up in the comments, ideally with pictures, if you’d like to share.

Like standing. But for coffee I site.

Nice. I actually have a desk that can be set to standing, but I’m too lazy to set it. I do have a decent chair with good back support, and I take lots of breaks to walk around.

As someone who used to smoke, believe me, sitting is a lot less damaging. But it’s also the reason I run, lift weights, and partake in other forms of physical activity.

Haha. If it’s any consolation, most of the equipment you see there is either second hand, or purchased/upgraded over time.

It’s worth noting that this is what’s possible when you don’t have to spend all your hardware budget on one overpriced, fruity laptop. 🙂
