Disaffected Prep

Sunday, December 13, 2009


Welcome to the working week

I recently had a conversation recently where I was asked about what I wanted to be when I was a kid.  I tossed the question around in my head for a bit and realized that - well - I always wanted to be a businessman. 

Maybe it was standing on the platform of the Summit train station at 7am with all the suits as I wanted with my fellow students for the train to take us to prep school.  Maybe it was the BusinessWeek subscription at my house - it could be anything, really. 

So for those reasons and perhaps others, I find elements of "work culture" endlessly fascinating.  Pictures of mainframe computers, corporate letterhead, stories of barbarians at the gate, you name it - I'm interested.

As we move more and more to "open offices" and "flexible schedules" where you work from home (all with their merits), I've increasingly become interested in the aesthetics of desk spaces.  Michael Williams of A Continuous Lean has covered this area pretty well.

Perhaps because of the new year around the corner, perpetual calendars keep popping up in my head as an item of aesthetic interest. 

Here are a few perpetual calendars that have caught my eye recently on Etsy.  Perfect stocking stuffer for that special corporate lackey on your Christmas list.
