Dress Your Desk for Success

Based on principles of the ancient Chinese art of feng shui, that every object in one's environment contributes to the state of their livelihood and affects the flow of energy, You Are Doing a Freaking Great Job offers the following tips for a "simple workspace makeover":

  • To attract prosperity, place a plant in the back left corner of your desk, which is the space said to represent wealth.
  • Place a reference book or inspiring intellectual object on the front left corner of your desk to invite wisdom into your work life.
  • Add something made of wood for a boost of inspiration (this is especially effective if the object is placed in the eastern corner). Why not make a vintage wood sign?
