How To Set Up Your Office
Tai Feb 13, 2016
The way you spend your day is up to you. Even if you hold down a 9 – 5 job, you probably have some flexibility in your approach and how you spend your time.

Recently, a guy reached out and asked, “Can we get a better look at how you work?” This was a great question, so I decided to create a YouTube video to share an inside view of my workspace.

It’s safe to say that a lot of people were surprised at what they saw.

Sure, I have a “real office” in the house where you sit down and look professional, but guess what? This isn’t where I spend most my time.

Instead, here’s my approach: you need to make your work environment as fun and enjoyable as possible. This will keep you focused. It will also make you more productive.

It may sound impossible, but it’s not. Here are some important points of advice:

Get a Treadmill Desk

Who said you have to sit down when you work. This isn’t good for you. There are times when you have no choice but to sit, but don’t make this a way of life.

Get at treadmill desk so you can walk a few miles per day, all the while doing your job.
If your company can’t afford one, buy your own. Remember, this is an investment in your body and your brain. It takes money to make money, and a treadmill desk will definitely increase your productivity while benefiting your body.

You Don’t Need Tons of Space

I can hear you now, “but Tai, I don’t have space like you in my home." It doesn’t matter.

You can set up an office anywhere in your home. Use a spare bedroom or the basement. Clear out some space in your garage. Find a spot outdoors.

A small space can accommodate everything you need, including a treadmill desk, television, and maybe even some free weights.

Make the Most of Your Time

People are always telling me they don’t have time to get stuff done because they’re always working. Don’t let this be your excuse.
I walk an average of five miles per day on a treadmill, all while working on my laptop computer.

I watch sporting events while I work, taking time out during commercial breaks to lift weights.

No matter who you are, there are 24 hours in a day. The way you spend your time is what matters most. Make every minute count.

My Final Thoughts

If you follow this advice, you’ll find yourself feeling better, looking better, and working in a more productive and efficient manner. Doing this, one day at a time, can have a profound impact on your life.

I’ll leave you with this (and one of my favorite quotes):

 
Make your environment fun, even when you’re working
Don’t sit unless you absolutely have to
Make do with what you have
