60 Hours A Week Sitting At Desks - We Better Like The One We Have!

Don't ask me why, but last night I woke up thinking about desks. I guess it's because I spend a lot of time at one. It is where I do both my work and my play (computer games). I guess you could say I'm as addicted to my desk as I am to the computer. But that's another story. The thing that dawned on me is what a pal my desk has become.Think about it. In our modern world, there aren't very many people who can go through a day without spending at least some time at a desk. And, they come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. My first desk was a floating desk. This is one where it is attached to the wall without legs for support. Pretty sweet actually. I could freely move underneath it without bumping into the legs all the time. It wasn't perfect, and did have it's limits. For example, I couldn't sit on it. I always wondered how much weight it could take. Another down side to it was that it wasn't very big. I like to spread my stuff out, so that wasn't good. Still, for it's few faults it was still a great little des...

 


Three Levels of Home Office Furniture

You may have never looked at home office furniture specifically in terms of levels of quality before, but it is a useful exercise to engage in when trying to determine what sort of furniture you want for your home office. Let's walk through three levels of furniture, with a focus on case furniture. Obviously, a similar discussion could be applied to things like couches, chairs, or mirrors that are common in any office, but I've decided to stick to the hard case furniture for now.One of the things many people struggle with is to transition from the old thriftier type home office furniture they got accustom to using during college or early married life. In those years money is super tight and you do what you have to do. This is level one. Furniture is functional. It isn't really fancy or beautiful. It gets the job done. Cinder blocks and pine boards made a nice bookshelf for me for years. A card table served as my desk. Once I recognized that it was okay for me to upgrade it felt good. I suspect that many peopl...

 


Why One Motivational Speaker Doesn't Make Wishes for Success

I always hear people say that they wish they can have this or they can have that. Although what they want can differ, the commonality is that they always use the word 'wish' in their statement, and usually with a sigh! As a motivational speaker, I firmly believe that if you want to achieve goals in life, you must be aware that there's a significant difference between making a committed decision and simply just making a wish. This is an extremely important concept that I point out during my motivational speeches. Wishes are weak and wimpy when compared to totally committed decisions.If you just wish for something, like you wish you had more money or you wish you could be in better shape or you wish you could get rid of some bad habit, chances are you will probably not do much about it. Life won't really change all that much for you. How many times do we hear people say that they wished their lives were better? But do they actually do anything about it? Often they do not, by my observation. Their action...
