    I was reading Biophase's thread, Stuck? Change Your Environment!, and it occurred to me that I needed to move from my boring kitchen table, and set up shop in one of our empty rooms that I would actually enjoy walking into every morning.
    I live off a golf course in a small town called Mansfield, Texas. So I didn't have to make a dramatic move since I am happy here, but I did need a way to enhance my mood to help with productivity.

    So I bought a bright orange rug, painted a wall green and set up shop. The environment that you work in really can play a role in your productivity. Just like Biophase explained in his thread, "It just shows you what a change in environment can do for you".


    No matter where you work, post what kind of environment does the trick for you with pictures if you are willing. Are you a basement dweller or do you need a fresh breeze every morning like Biophase?

    You're very organized, already have july on the calendar. This is my space getting paperwork done. Notice the mini-fridge? That's a productivity booster right there!

    My little set-up. I really like it, but I'm looking forward to getting a room of my own. Maybe next time we move. ;)

    btw @snowbank had an insane setup at one time if I remember correctly. Can't find a pic though. It was something like 6 monitors combined around a really cool desk.

    Cool thread.

    I work out of one of the sydney university libraries, not photo worthy. Ironically I don't go to the uni and use my friends wifi logins. He hardly turns up and I joke that I'm getting more out of his degree/fees than he is.

    PS here's a cool website that can play lots of nice background noises whilst you work. eg fireplace, cafe, trains, ocean, etc

    And this is mine. Just a laptop on a corner of the kitchen table.
    I don't want it to be more comfortable as it motivates me to work harder to reach my objectives.

    No, making money is much more fun. I will post a picture later of what they usually look like and the area.

    After seeing this thread, i realize why i don't like to work down there. it is gloomy and boring. Time to paint some walls and get some color.

    I don't think you can buy those one, but there are several dual screen ones out you can buy. Never used one personally though.
