Loving Monday: Rearranging the Furniture

loving_mondayErgonomics has its place. And that’s all I’m going to say.

Efficiency is important, and yet it is only one factor among many. Variety is another. Neither is the whole story.

Today I’m going to suggest that you rearrange the furniture.

I’m going to suggest that you break out of the stultifying sameness of your static set-up. Give your brain the fun and refreshing challenge of seeing things differently. Of not being able to count on the same-ol’ same-ol’. Of being forced to bring to the conscious level what has been in the background.

Doing things differently simply because the furniture is on the other side of the room from where it used to be, necessitates new perspectives, takes us to different vantage points and can bring to awareness assumptions about how and why we do certain things the way we do.

Minimally, you’ll give your brains a visual treat and an energizing exercise. More significantly, you are creating opportunities to stumble upon new and better ways of experiencing work even as you avoid literally stumbling upon your work.

Let’s start this week off by rearranging the furniture.

On your side,
