    Well today I was cleaning, sat back thinking to myself, this area is the reason for my productivity.

    I believe a nice clean environment really promotes productivity. (Especially using the Pomodoro Method)

    Can't forget out little buddy "Gusstav" We call him "Guss" for short.

    I guess my suggestion for other people are treat yourself to a nice environment.

    That said, just clean up your "Work space" - Organize your paperwork, which I hope you guys take plenty of written notes from BHW ;). If you think successfully, feel successful, you'll be successful.

    "Belief in oneself is one of the most important bricks in building any successful venture." - Lydia M. Child

    Also, since I read about the Pomodoro method here, it really helps with time anxiety for deadlines (Again, I hope after you take written notes, you are setting goals/deadlines to complete a method or service)

    Lets see your home set up, post your pictures in this thread. (And for the love of god, please make sure they're re-sized so they're not the size of Canada)

    Or for some reason you have a question, ask it here.

    The goldfish is a nice idea, I got flowers in my room and now fishes are next. My beautiful cockatiels already flew out off my window last year.

    The best is, when you have to go to a vacation and you need someone to take care of it, you just replace the goldfish it with a new one :)

    Ha, thanks!

    It's not a gold fish, they die too quickly. It's a "Betta fish". They are a LOT more bad ass. I'm not much of a flower guy, they seem to make a mess (If they're real)

    Your birds flew out of your window?!

    HA, it's your room RIGHT? So set it up any way you want! Tell them it's YOUR office!

    Ha, thanks.

    I will say it again though, it's not a gold fish, it's a Betta Fish. In other words, a bad ass.

    I threw my throne of money into this funnel I like to call Adwords.

    FUCK! I knew I was missing something. Ordering one now.

    Thanks though :)

    I 'm guessing your setup is a little noisy. When you upgrade, I 'd suggest getting as much noiseless hardware as possible!

    From my personal experience, it was a huge boost. I went the Apple way, but there 's a lot of quality hardware generally, take a look at http://www.quietpc.com/ .

    It's not too noisy at all. I actually think the slight humming noise from my equipment is kind of therapeutic.

    Thanks for the heads up though!

    Alright... here is my setup...
    [​IMG]

    I have an office and warehouse as opposed to many who work out of their homes, I sit in a cubical with rest of my employees because 1 of the 2 rooms I could use needs to be remodeled, the other is too close to this crappy pond/water fountain thing outside and it annoys me and when I tried to make it work, I had people running in and out of my office room all day so I figured it would just be better for communication if I just sat out there too.

    Hey Hostie. I am concerned about your fish, it looks part dead. It lives in a totally sterile environment, does not even have an air pump.

    I think that if you got yourself a properly maintained aquarium with some goldfish, your wealth would increase according to Feng Shui principles. Guss would love the company as well.
