What Really Matters At Work

It can be hard to be motivated when at work sometimes. Depending on what your job is your only thought can be to rock in on time, do as little as possible during the day, and then be at home before people notice you’ve left. Ideally you probably want to do enough work to look productive but not too much that you’ll end up with more work and higher standards. Of course, that’s if you don’t care about climbing corporate ladders. Those with ambitions of reaching steeper heights will welcome the work. They’ll also receive more scorn from their work mates but that’s another story.

If you’re not the motivated type, working can be so much worse than a chore. Most days you don’t even want to be there but you need to get so you need to get paid. Therefore, you need to work. However, driving or walking up to the building just gives you the pits to the extent that when you enter your work space you feel like it’s swallowed you whole. Your actual work area looks oppressive and like it’s the vampire of work cubicles. It’s completely sucking your energy away. The worst part is, you really can’t do much about it.

Well, maybe you can. Office fitouts Melbourne are a useful concept but you haven’t seen or heard it used very often. Basically it’s ‘equipping your office space to suit your professional tastes’. That means your office can’t be treated like a second home but at least it might be able to be spruced up a little. That will raise your morale and make you more productive. Well, that’s what you claim. If you can convince your boss that a leather couch will entice you to stay overnight to catch up on paper work or that the spinny chair is good for making eye contact with visitors, you might as well take advantage of it.

Of course, office fitouts still have to make sense. No one cares that a lava lamp enhances spiritual energy because they want to see you expend your physical energy on getting work done. Nor do they care about seeing a goldfish bowl on a table next to the electrical socket. Actually, they will care if it tips over and fries the electricity in the building. You’d just be an unfortunate but replaceable casualty. So make sure you play it smart.

In essence, office fitouts are just suiting up your office space for appearance’s sake. What matters to the company is your professional output. Well, most of the time. If potential clients see you with your feet up next to the monitor as you’re playing a computer game and wasting time, there’ll be hell to pay. The couch will be thrown out the window, likely with you on it. So make sure you do your work.
