10 Part Series: How to Increase Your Productivity as a Designer — Tip # 10:
A comfortable office is one of the most important aspects of your work. After all, how productive will you if can only think of how badly you want to be out of the office? In addition to wanting to spend time in your office, if everything is nicely organized and laid out in a logical fashion, it will increase your productivity infinitely.
If you make your office into a place you enjoy, you won’t be distracted by how much you hate it there, or how much you want to be somewhere else. However, there’s a fine line between having an office that reflects your personal style, and an office that has become your home. There needs to be a definite separation between home and office, so be careful not to make it too comfy and inviting, and make sure that the personal touches you add will promote productivity rather than distract from it.
For example, the presence of a nicely designed organizer that reflects your personal style is extremely helpful to your productivity. Pieces like this will not only serve a practical function, but will make you happy to use them and look at them every day. Pieces like a distracting video game, noisy toys, and otherwise distracting devices will not increase your productivity, but rather will hinder it. If you are constantly thinking of using/playing with things you have brought into your office while you are supposed to be working, your productivity will obviously be affected.
