This is a Friday when most folks aren’t in the office. When I used to have an office away from my home, this day and the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day were my favorite days to sneak in for an hour or two to organize things.
It was the “be there when you don’t have to be” feeling.
It was the “be with the handful of folks who are also there” camaraderie.
It was the “I can clean out my files and talk about anything” freedom.
It was the “everyone has taken a vacation from deadlines” lack of stress.
It was the “I can toss this, move that, and add a picture” comfort and pride of ownership.
It was the space, the quiet, the room to breathe.
We spend more waking time in our offices than in our living rooms. It only took an hour or two to make my space somewhere I wanted to be.
