Welcome Wednesday: What's on your desk?

Jimmy Seddon Community Leader Jan 13, 2021

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

We are a couple of weeks into 2021 and I know that I personally am still in lockdown with orders to stay at home as much as possible.  When I was at the office I was one of those people with a bunch of toys on my desk.

At home I have a shelf behind me that has a bunch of my toys.

My question for you this week, is what do you have on your desk?  You can simply tell us or share pictures if you are comfortable doing that.

Have a great rest of the week!

Thank you!! Happy New year to all! I actually have a concern (I have tickets it to customer service) regarding my Trello Cards. Where would it be best for me to post this and seek for solutions? :)

Hi @Raw byroque,

I'd recommend posting a new question in the Trello Product Collection.

I'm sure someone there will be more than happy to help!

-Jimmy

Sounds good! Did that just now! Thank you!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the community & welcome center group!

Just Learn, Share, Solve & Enjoy!

So, right now I have a pen, a notebook & a water bottle on my desk! I prefer a clean desk while working but sometimes it's not possible! 😋

Regards,

Soumyadeep

Hi @Jimmy Seddon 

  I also like to have things on my desk, I usually have a guillotine that my husband gave me My little yoda, my tazmanian devil.

  I'm excited to have my desk decorated, I think it makes it more personal

  Happy wednesday

Cheers

@Vero Rivas not sure I expected the answer of "a guillotine" 😂

That's an interesting post!

For me, I have a couple of new books lying on my desk at home, which I have yet to start reading in 2021 :-)

This is my Home office (work side, I also have a school side and a Personal Business side). We are semi-permanently WFH long term so I took some of my stimulus check to build it out. The desk I built myself. & is an upcycled 1895 Steinway flat-top piano.  desk.jpg

@StephanieC wow this is amazing, a piano!?? I love your whiteboard and the butterfly hanging thingy too. I definitely have home office envy (my home office is a chair).

Some books, Cloudie! and some items from various travels: Elephant from India, porcelain lid to bowl from Greece, chess set from Boliva, wooden chest from Rwanda, shells from the Red Sea, beads also from India. And then a used game puck from a Nashville Predators game.

Here is my cube wall. I use it as my virtual background. The calendar is frozen in time to the day I began working from home during the pandemic.

@T Chambers hopefully you'll get to go back soon(ish).

@Monique vdB it's all good. The rest of the story is that our HQ building is now shared with USA Archery and USA Fencing. I gave up my cube in support of that change. I'd rather stay remote and only go to HQ for occasional f2f meetings. I am 100% happier and arguable more productive in my home office. I'll make a note to myself to take a picture after I clean it up.

The essential C's are all you need!  Computers, chargers, caffeine!

I'm currently using my dining room table as a desk (it's easier for me to watch my son), and it's SO cluttered with everything but nothing fun.  A bunch of books, wires, coloring pencils.

@Kristin Lyons you're in good company. My daughter finally went back to school this week (they are being extremely safe) and it's such a relief.  How old is your son?

carrie_eandm Community Leader Jan 13, 2021

With the pandemic, our management staff asked for employees to remove all personal items from their work desks - so at the moment, it’s only the computer, a coaster and keyboard/mouse. Easier to wipe down, but it’s very bland. I am looking forward to bringing back my plants and photos!

OK @Jimmy Seddon I thought I will share the photo of my desk, but I'm ashamed when I see others photos :D. Did you expect such reaction? But you know what? I will clean it and reorganize it and will share it later :).

@Jimmy Seddon you did a great job, my wife would be surprised (I will not show her or she will force me to clean my desk at home):D

LOL!! Honestly the before doesn't look that bad.

@Martin Bayer _MoroSystems_ s_r_o__ I just think you need some artwork or pictures on the wall!

(This may be because I have like twice as much art as could fit on the walls of my house. I might have an art problem.)

@Jimmy Seddon maybe I could share your comment with my wife :D

@Monique vdB you are right, it is too boring. I ordered some sticky board (blue with clouds) and I will try to put there some photos, or pictures... great idea :)

@Jimmy Seddon I am to embarrassed to post an image of my desk because it is such a mess right now.    I am happy to report back that this weekend I will be cleaning it up.  Thanks for the motivation.

All I have on my desk is a computer, a couple of keyboards and mice and a monitor.   I often add a cup of tea and a notepad when I'm working there, but it's not very interesting.

Oh.  And a cat.  There's usually a cat on it with me.
