or Get Anything Done…A Solution That Works
According to Mac Anderson Founder, Simple Truths, a few years
ago a health study determined there are three main reasons people
can't cope in life:
1) They live in the past.
2) They have a low self-esteem.
3) They can't laugh at themselves.
All three of these can be important when you cannot focus and
are unmotivated. Moreover, if one of them fits, you need to take
appropriate action. But if you have carefully checked all three of
these out and none of them fit you – then what?
Pam is a very determined businessperson who works from her
home office. She recently relocated so her office was in new space
of her choosing filled with positive energy. Nevertheless Pam was
stuck, always on edge, not able to focus and definitely unmotivated.
She was so unmotivated that she was falling behind on her work and
didn't even want to sit behind her desk.
She Needed to

is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different
Pam realized she needed to change something but what. She agonized
over what went wrong and did a good job of playing the self-blame
game. She remained unsettled, anxious and completely avoided her
workspace, falling further behind. She said, "I feel like I'm
crawling on the ceiling and can't get down. Everything seems out of
Pam was encouraged to reflect on her workspace, take into
consideration Feng Shui principles and how they apply to the
location of her desk. Pam believed in the flow of positive energy

and fix her unsettled nerves.

the wall with her back toward everything and as she sat at her
desk, all of her personal energy was falling right out of the
workspace into the remainder of the house, taking her right with
position, her chair was placed so she did not have a commanding
view of her space and the doors leading into her space.
Plus she had
her income and new business energy plant flowing away from her
taking her desire to work and create new business right with it.
All of this created chaos in the energy surrounding her
workspace causing her to struggle with focusing and totally stopped
her progress. The following corrections were made.
The desk was
turned perpendicular to the wall giving her ample space to walk
around it and for the proper placement of her chair. This step
gave definition and control to her workspace.
Her chair was
placed in the corner behind her desk providing her full view of
the entire room and entrances. This is the position of power and
control. She was not only in control of her workspace but also
in command of everything within view allowing her to focus and
The plant was
moved into the corner behind her chair providing her a constant
flow of new business and income energy.
The shift in energy was immediate, her workspace was back in
balance. Pam said, "I felt relaxed, grounded and settled for the
first time since my relocation and I love sitting and working at my
desk." She did some additional uncluttering on her desk to help her
concentrate and has settled right into a calm routine, focuses on
the work at hand and is motivated.
The power of the flow of energy and the placement of
furniture should not be underestimated. This Feng Shui principle can
be applied to all rooms and the placement of all furniture.
