Working remotely at home was difficult at first. With time though, I found it difficult to go elsewhere to work. I had too much to take with me: my laptop, folders, papers, notes, stenopad, pens, highlighters, and more importantly, my post-its. It was time to make changes. I created a separate work place – some would call it a home office. Now, my home office is littered with post-its. I call it office décor.
I always had a post-it or two stuck on my monitor as a student. Now colorful pieces of paper are stuck on my folder, papers, monitor, desk calendar and planner. I realized though, this was a good sign and measure of my productivity.
Working with iMADdu has kept me busy enough to have to use post-its, my note taking mechanism. I am never bored on the job and I’ve always got something new to do or learn. And on a personal level, I’ve created a more stable work space in my home. After my term ends, I feel as though my work space is going to be very lackluster as I take all the colorful iMADdu related post-its off. Until then, it will remain to sit as my office décor.
