Hi The coach zone,

Welcome to this weeks Get COACHd on Friday.

If you look at your work surface in front of you, what adjectives would you use to describe it?

I see tidy and structured.

I know where everything is and can get to most things fairly quickly.

However, others might look at my desk in despair that not everything is in a clearly laid out fashion with some form of logic (to them).

But if I look again, I could also use ‘messy’. But I am only seeing it as that, when I look at it. When my focus is drawn to it. When I am in flow – I do not see this messiness. I am not distracted but certainly it can get in the way of me getting into flow.

So an exercise for you.

  • What are you noticing right now about your work environment?
  • What is helping, and what is not helping?
  • What do you feel good about and perhaps not so good about?
  • What small change in your environment could you make that could help you feel more in flow?

As I write this, I am drawn to a cable from a new device (actually it’s a webcam light), that is dangling on the floor by my feet. It is uncomfortable, so I must go and move that now.

Have a good read.
