Inside Kaleigh's Workspace
Kaleigh was previously featured in edition #87 of Workspaces. This is her updated workspace.
What is the most useful item in your workspace?
I feel like my computer is the duh answer, so I'll go with the key lights behind it instead. I like to keep my office fairly dark and cozy, so having these lights I can flip on during video calls and podcast recordings means I get optimal light for that scenario, but only when I need it!
How do you spark creativity?
Music for sure. I work mostly to instrumental music during the day (words are too distracting!) and then a lot of Radiohead at low volumes if I'm working on a creative writing project, like the novel I'm back to working on at night.
What does your typical day look like?
It's always different, but right now it usually flows like this:
-Start work/check emails around 8:30 am
-Take care of any administrative tasks (building writing briefs/outlines, checking in with clients, etc.)
-Break for lunch and a dog walk
-A few hours of deep work in the afternoon
-Gym, yoga class, or go for a run to wind down the day
If you could only choose one... written word or podcast?
Written word, always and forever. Even though I've loved getting into podcasts and audiobooks this past year, there's something in me that loves a physical book in hand and reading at my own speed.
