It’s been a week of changes at work. After having the same office for more than 16 years I moved into a new workspace.
I’ll be honest… at first, I really didn’t want to move. I had my space. It was comfortable. It was what I knew. It was all I knew in this building, as I had occupied the same office since my company relocated there in 2001.
There was an upside to the move that had me just a little bit excited… I was moving into my own recording studio/office. I could set it up the way I wanted. It would also give me the freedom to schedule client recordings whenever I want without having to reserve a studio.
Another benefit to changing offices is that I was forced to finally get rid of years of “stuff” that had accumulated and was filling up my office cabinets and credenza.
Now that I’m all moved I have to say that switching offices has been a positive experience. Purging and cleaning during the move were freeing and being in a new space has given me a creative energy and spark.
While my physical office move was happening this week there was another change taking place. We were converting to a new “behind the scenes” computer system.
This conversion brought its’ own set of challenges but it’s also been a little exciting. After years of using the same system, it’s been a welcome challenge to learn a new program and figure out how I can use it to get things done and be more productive.
I’m not going to lie, though… both changes have brought some frustrations too. Through them all, I tried to remember Joshua 1:9 NIV.
