i remember last year, when i was packing up my office, that i had a few boxes of 'stuff.' this stuff included books, notebooks, memorabilia, pictures, files, pens, pencils, cup-holders, my stash of tea and drink mixes and other stuff. i decided, with the move to the open shared office space, that i would go paperless and have little to zero things.
i have largely achieved this goal. whereas i used to have lots of notepads and notebooks, now all my notes are captured using microsoft one-note. the only times i have needed to print or use paper in the last year was for business-required purposes. but if the purpose was my own, i found a way to use/store it electronically.
all my other stuff, i ditched or gave away.
today, i moved office locations again. i cleaned out my personal locker and all of my stuff fit in one small bag. mostly the stuff i had were drink mixes, a mug and some books from a training class i had taken recently. in a matter of 3 minutes, i was packed and gone from my old office.
my new office is much like my old office, only now i have an assigned seat again. all i have at my new desk now is my mug and phone charger, along with my laptop and docking station, which were provided by my company.
