The Command Centre

Dave likes to call my office the command centre because I have three monitors set up.

He says it looks like something out of hacker movie or Mr robot….

Having the right set up is super important for me…

A lot of people ask how I managed to be so productive…

And get lots of stuff done…

I think one of the biggest secrets is having a clear desk…

No piles of junk or clutter…

And also having a workstation that is comfortable and easy-to-use…

It fills me with horror when I see how some people have their computer set up…

A tiny monitor balanced on top of some books…

Loads of clutter….

And a really awkward seating arrangement which would force bad posture…

I could never work in an environment like that!!

That’s why whenever I set up an office..

  • Whether it’s permanent
  • Semipermanent
  • Only a week
  • Or even a hotel room for one night

I make sure I have a desk that is comfortable to sit at…

At least two computer monitors at the correct height..

A full-size keyboard and mouse…

And a comfortable chair…

Back in 2018 I was staying in a hotel at Long Beach California.

I had a beautiful room overlooking the harbour…

There was a nice desk in the corner of the room which was ideal to set my computer up on.

However I found the chair in the room really uncomfortable whilst working on my computer.

So I went on a hunt around the hotel for a comfortable chair…

After about 45 minutes I finally found a comfortable chair in one of the restaurants….

I simply picked up a chair and carried it out…

One of the hotel staff asked if I would like some help…

So I told him I had a bad back I needed this chair in my hotel room…

He very kindly took it up to my room….

Was it worth the hassle?

That same evening I hosted a live three-hour webinar…

During the webinar we did 47k in sales….

So I’d have to say yes it was definitely worth spending the time and effort to set my office up…

Even this morning when I was writing this newsletter…

Before I started I gave my office a quick tidy up…

And you know what it’s made it much easier getting this newsletter written….

Movies I’ve watched this week

A couple of months ago I picked up the 4K Blu-ray of E.T.

And on Monday I decided to finally watch it…

I sat down to watch it and for some reason the sound wouldn’t work…

There seem to be a problem with my AV amplifier….

I spent over an hour fiddling with the settings and it still wouldn’t work…

In the end I had to do a factory reset…

This seemed to sort the problem out….

I guess everything these days has some sort of computer inside it….

And you know what the classic tech support joke is if something doesn’t work…

Have you tried turning it off and on!!

The factory reset seem to fix the problem….

But I then had to run through the surround sound setup again.

Anyway to cut a long story short I watched E.T. on Wednesday and was completely blown away by the soundtrack.

I’d only seen this movie once as a child…

WOW that was almost 40 years ago…

I guess I hadn’t realised what an amazing film it was especially the soundtrack!!

I think I’m going to watch it again next week!

Have a great week whatever you’re doing and if you’re in America happy Thanksgiving,
