  • How To Design A More Focused and Productive Work Environment (TPS291)

Whether you are working in an office or working from home, the environment you are in is either supporting or hurting your productivity – you just may not know it!

This episode is about designing your environment. We don’t mean whether your walls should be “Raspberry Truffle” or what size your baseboards should be — we mean setting up where you work and live so that you are able to get your best work done and be as productive as possible.
