Let’s Blog Off - What’s Thumbtacked Over Your Desk?

Posted on September 13, 2011 by Nora DePalma3 Comments


Today’s Let’s Blog Off topic is Thumbtacks.



I use thumbtacks for no other purpose than to post things I love over my desk. A boss once told me that it’s unprofessional to have a lot of personal things over your desk.

Maybe so. But I’ve tacked up precious memories for more than 25 years, and I really don’t think it’s really hurt my career. Enjoy the tour of my thumbtacked life:

Shortly after first meeting with John O'Reilly to discuss collaboration, I found this in a fortune cookie.

    Lovely memories. I’m sure having these photos near your desk has enhanced your working life. Thanks for sharing them.

    Yes, memories are great for thumbtacking up. I have a huge inspiration board behind me that spilled over and off the bulletin board. I love it.
