creating a happy and productive desk space

When creating a happy and productive work space, some of my must have items are: good lighting, a note pad, a planner, and thank you notes.

LIGHTING: having good lighting is so important because it sets the tone for your work space.

PLANNER: having a planner is critical to keeping a productive schedule. At work, i have three planners. i have one on my computer that gives me notifications for important cases, then i have one monthly hard copy calendar with my trial schedule and days off color coated. Finally, i have a daily planner to manage day to day tasks.

i have had many planners throughout college and law school, but i started using the Day Designer line last year and am obsessed.

The planner linked has daily, weekly, and monthly views. Additionally, there is a new quote each week on the upper corner of each page. Finally, the planner encourages you to set mini goals–financial, work related, and personal–throughout the year.

THANKYOU’s/ STATIONARY: having thank you notes on your desk is a good reminder to thank those who make a difference. Everyone loves a nice handwritten note. Cards or stationary also add a touch of artwork to your work space.

Along with cards, i also keep a contact book on my desk. It’s kind of old school, but it’s my favorite method of storing contacts. i like the kate spade contact book because it has a pocket to throw stamps, address labels, and anything else. Plus, it is very reasonably priced compared to other contact books out there.

NOTEPADS: sticky notes and note pads are a no brainer for jotting down quick notes or for making a short to do list.
