Freelancers have the luxury of working anywhere and anytime they want. A perk most freelancers enjoy is having the freedom to decorate their own workspaces.
The most essential element in freelancer workspaces is their desktop computer or laptop (obviously because they do online projects). Some prefer to have just their computer while others want additional work tools (calculators, tablets, pens, etc.) and accents on their desks.
Having a comfortable workspace can do wonders for a freelancer’s productivity. It allows one to concentrate solely on important tasks and dismiss distractions.
Have you been distracted lately? It could be because of your disorganized desk. To connect productivity to one’s environment, Dr. B.J. Fogg, Director of Stanford's Persuasive Tech Lab once stated:
"There’s just one way to radically change your behavior: radically change your environment."
