If you were to seek an environment that would encourage you to produce the most inspired work of your life, where would you go? Would your office or factory spring immediately to mind? Or would you choose a verdant forest, a rocky mountain, or an ocean at sunset? Or perhaps a beautiful temple, an art gallery or museum, a fine hotel, or a concert — or home? It is a tragedy that the contemporary office tower does not enrapture the soul. Yet if we wish to inspire the soul let’s create beautiful souls spaces where our spirits can soar. What steps will you take to convert your workplace into a soulspace?

My workplace is a mess.
There are paid bills to my left that I have not filed away for the last year. I haven’t cleaned my standing desk in at least six months.
Behind me on the coffee table are books from interviews with authors I’ve done that I have yet to put away in a bookcase.
The windowsill has clutter, too.
It should be no surprise that in the space for of clutter and mess I would feel overwhelmed.
I don’t know how it is for you but things get away from me and build up to a point where they run may is that of the other way around.
I’ll do two things in the next two days — but the books on the bookcases and file the bills away.
And then I’ll vacuum!
