Step 1: No politics or religion The first rule? Keep politics and religion out of the decor. You're at the office to do a job, not win converts. Step 2: Keep collectibles at home Keep collectibles at home. You need to be able to spread out your work without constantly having to upend your glass menagerie. Step 3: Limit photos Limit photos of friends, pets, and family lest your cubicle begin to resemble the celebrity endorsement wall of a restaurant. Tip Desk photos that face outwards make the statement that family is important to you. Step 4: Buy plants Buy some plants and take good care of them; studies show this sends the message that you are committed to your job. Tip To follow one of the principles of Feng Shui, have an odd number of plants. Step 5: Get a clock Get a clock. Contrary to logic, studies show it sends the message that you're meticulous and hard-working, not a clock-watcher. Step 6: Place mementos Have a few sentimental mementos around, like the snow globe from the place you got engaged. They tell visitors that you are an agreeable person. Step 7: Put out bowl of candy Put out a bowl of candy (unless, of course, you don't want colleagues dropping by). It's the office equivalent of a welcome mat. Step 8: Keep area tidy However you decorate, keep your area tidy. Research shows employees with messy workstations are rated lower on agreeableness, conscientiousness, and intelligence. Did You Know? According to one study, too many sticky notes send the signal that you're overwhelmed by your job.
