What do you look at everyday? Really, what is in your line of sight while you work? I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. In keeping with how I want to feel and seeing with a fresh set of eyes, I am taking time to look around a bit more at what I live with, especially while I work. I’m not staring at a computer screen all day. My work keeps me moving and in and out a lot. What’s around me effects my mood and my presence of mind. I’ve made a conscious decision to keep things close to eye level that inspire me. While I’m thinking about changing the office design (I’m going to have to make time for that) here is what I see daily.
Photos of my grandparents. All four of my grandparents worked. In fact, my aunt used to say that if my grandmother had gone to college she probably would have been a CEO. They were hard workers and inspirational people. I was lucky to have all of my grandparents through my college years and many beyond. These pictures make me happy.
New York City. A painting of a New York City Scene. Art and the City. Two highly inspirational subjects for me so they go front and center.
What I’m not showing? Pictures of our family. My artwork from when I was a kid. You get the idea. The things I love will find a new home when I redesign. It’s important that the things that inspire me are in my work space. I spend a lot of time here and I want to be my best for those hours of the day. I want to make new art and create new products which takes inspiration and energy. You need enthusiasm about where you work and what you’re working on. What’s in your line of sight?
