You make your desk pretty. There is something about pretty things that inspire me to work. It can be anything from a pretty notebook and pen to pretty paper and post-its to a pretty computer monitor and keyboard to a pretty vintage bulletin board. Think of it as creating the right atmosphere / environment conducive to productivity – whatever that environment is to you. To me, it’s prettiness (coupled with functionality of course).
My Macbook Pro is fairly new from November 2012 and I had intended on getting the Mac Thunberbolt monitor to go with it because the last thing I want is to be working on complicated school projects in a teeny-tiny laptop screen. I couldn’t justify the cost of the Thunderbolt though, so I searched high and low for a pretty white monitor. Here I am with this beautiful cheap and cheerful 21.5″ BenQ monitor that they call the “Macbook Companion”. I’d have to agree because she is quite perfect for the job. I couldn’t be more satisfied.
