I have a small hour glass (well half hour glass) that I put on top of my phone when I need to focus on tasks.Β  Funny desk calendar and house plants to keep me somewhat sane.Β  Usually keep a thc vape close by too.

Dig the hourglass on the phone idea to help stay on task! Think I'm going to steal that.Β 

Especially since hourglasses look cool too.

I love fidget things on my desk, especially magnets. There's a company called Speks that has these awesome things called Fleks. They keep selling out, but if you can get some they're the best desk toy I've had in a long time.Β

I love a good desk toy - recently I've been into aromatherapy play dough. Feel like a child, but it's so satisfying.Β

Sonos Boom. Music helps to keep me in check and the bass on this thing is AMAZING.Β

I have a calculator. Keeps me from using the one on my phone and goofing around, or the one on my computer and again, goofing around. Feels wildly old school.Β

It feels like a dumb hack β€œI have this machine that only does 1 thing!” But more importantly it only does one thing and I have to use it for that task.Β

I don't have room for anything other than my notebooks, mouse, laptop, lamp, and ring light. I like to spread out.

Tripod desk has changed my life. My wife and I both work from home so we have to share a lot and it can get complicated if I am trying to blast out some calls while she is in a meeting.Β 

I bought this tripod desk that is big enough to fit my lap top and can go from sitting in front of me while I am on the couch to full standing (and I am 6'3" so finding something that is tall enough is already a challenge). Super simple design and has really opened up where I can comfortably work.

I would post the link but don't want to get flagged as promoting any specific brand. Just Google Tripod desk

I have this little organizer with a phone charger and whiteboard. Freaking love it.

I’m a hand-written kind of guy so I needed something to help with those damn post-it notes!

I installed misters on my back patio (where I have an outdoor table I work from every now and then) during the first summer of the pandemic. Love catching up on emails outside on a warm day.Β

I have 4 coasters on my desk I quite like, one for coffee, one for water, one for a smoothie bottle and a free one :)
