My home office tends to get cluttered. I have an annual tradition of thoroughly cleaning it on New Years Day.
I am a day late this year, but I went a step further. I moved my office to an entirely different room.
I also setup a card table and chair as a place for video calls. When on video calls I do not use external displays or a laptop stand. I want to look straight into the MacBook Pro’s camera, so I use only the built-in display and put it directly in front of me. I now have a dedicated place to do so in my office where the room’s overhead light is in front of my face.
