Your office desk!!! Hmmm…well its a place where you spend the most of your time. Isn’t it?? A stats say that on an average people spend 6 hours and 47 minutes per day sitting at their desks in India. It means the only thing you spend more time doing a day is sleeping. So, it’s quite predictable that your desk almost becomes an extension of your personality.
And believe it or not, unknowingly we all at some point in our career have glanced over at our co worker’s workspace and made impressions. Ironically, that’s beyond his/her physical appearances or flawless wardrobes. From the pile of file folders, half-filled coffee mugs, quickly-scribbled notes to tidy, minimalist, mess-free desk, everything speaks a lot about you so make sure it’s sending the right message.
Whether you’re a neat freak or an accumulator, your office décor is more telling than you might think.
A neat freak– You won’t find much on their desks besides the essentials, like keyboard, mouse, maybe a notepad. He is a-
- Conscientious worker
- Values time
Impression: How boring!!
Come on, it’s time to jazz it up little.
An accumulator – Ugh! There’s always that one person in the office who is well known for having a messy desk. A slew of papers, stationery, cables, meeting notes, printouts, leftovers… But He is –
- An extrovert
- A community volunteer
Impression: How can somebody work like that?
Hey buddy, you’d do well, if you maintain a little balance.
Your desk is your small kingdom, and given how much time you spend there, you’ll want it to reflect your personality as much as possible. Isn’t it?
But remember, Too much is Too bad……so, balance is the key!
Good Luck! Have a happy workplace! And don’t forget to tell us, What does your desk look like?
