3 Ways To Make Your Workspace More Productive Today
You’ve heard the adage, “time is money”, and that’s never truer than when you’re a coach building your business. Setting up a workspace that will help you become more productive is often overlooked but can be critical to growing your business.
Let’s take a look at three ways to make your workspace more productive today!
CHOOSE THE PERFECT LOCATION
Don’t make the mistake of thinking you need a full-on office (you don’t) or a dedicated room in your house (you don’t need that either) to set yourself up for success and productivity.
However, you do need your own private space that’s somewhere other than the dining room table.
I’ve seen coaches who are just getting started to convert a cozy corner or a small closet into an office and it works great! I worked out of the corner of my bedroom for years while I was first building my business.
Your working environment should be quiet and peaceful so that it allows you to focus on building your business and coaching your clients without distractions – something that can destroy productivity.
MAKE YOUR WORKSPACE INSPIRATIONAL
Once you have chosen your private working environment, fill it with beautiful things that inspire you like photos, flowers, or other keepsakes.
You can even put your vision board up to help you stay focused on what you want to achieve.
If you have inspirational items in your workspace it will help prevent you from being seeking out that inspiration online, on your phone, or elsewhere.
Also, make sure to avoid clutter and have a designated area for filing, supplies, and of course, trash. Remember, a cluttered workspace is a cluttered mind!
CHOOSE A SUPPORTIVE CHAIR
Make sure you have a comfortable chair that supports your body. This can make all the difference when it comes to being productive. If you are uncomfortable it will distract you from the tasks at hand.
For years I worked sitting in a cheap office chair because it’s all I could afford. I had terrible back and neck aches every single day.
So, after a couple of years of that, I saved up some money and purchased a Herman Miller Aeron chair. It cost around $800 – which was a fortune for me then, especially for a chair – but my back and neck never hurt a day after that. I still use this chair and it’s still amazing.
