My new workspace

I am delighted with the way my new space is working. It seems to be a very convenient way of working.

BUT after reading this in 'Outside the Lines', the newsletter by Box of Crayons - Michael Bungay Stanier I'm beginning to wonder if it's the right decision.
This is what Michael has to say.

Shift your perspective in space

When teaching creativity to teams in organizations, I'm forever getting people to move around and sit, stand and strut in different locations. In part it's just to stop their brains and bums going numb. But it's more than that: if you want to think differently, move differently.

For instance, you have a place where you are at your most focused and efficient. For many of us, it's our desk at work. This is a powerful and limiting place. To think and work differently, pick up and move somewhere else in the building. New ideas and perspectives guaranteed.

Thinking about the challenge at hand, here are just four places that will shift your perspective in space

Turn your chair around.
Walk around the neighbourhood
Find the comfiest place to be
Exercise and raise your heart rate.

Some of you will know how much I enjoy finding images everywhere. This is one I noticed and rearranged a little this morning and then I converted it to fabric using the same silky threads.

The strings in the top photo look like people walking. Too funny.

Fantastic! Isn't it amazing the way the mind interprets very simple shapes? So clever.
