This practice of having a dedicated work space fitted with the best quality equipment and kept in proper order stems from the knowledge that one's environment can truly dictate one's performance.

Office workers come in every day to desks and cubicles that are set up with everything they need for their daily tasks; entrepreneurs and business owners who work from home, on the other hand, are tasked with building their own work space, with some having greater success at the project than others. In two recent business update videos, SuperFastBusiness CEO James Schramko explores how environment affects business and provides helpful tips for creating a space that will enable people to crank out maximum productivity levels — and he shares his preferred top-of-the-line equipment for his business, too.
"One of the best ways to be more productive is to make sure that you surround yourself with all the right things to get the job done," the CEO begins. He describes how his home office has a computer on a stand-up desk (where he can work while reducing the amount of time spent sitting down each day) as well as a sit-down desk where he can work when he needs to rest from standing. Because he regularly creates videos and podcasts for his websites such as SuperFastBusiness.com, FastWebFormula.com, SilverCircle.com, ThinkActGet.com and FreedomOcean.com, he requires outstanding audio-visual equipment and makes sure to have a good microphone, camera, and lighting ready for use at any time.
"I have up-to-date modern machines that work well, that are clean, that are fast. And I make sure that I eat well, and sleep well, and exercise."
This practice of having a dedicated work space fitted with the best quality equipment and kept in proper order stems from the knowledge that one's environment can truly dictate one's performance. "I’ve been into people’s places and I’ve sat down at that old, little, dark, dingy corner desks stuffed full of CDs and DVDs and papers, and this clunky old Microsoft computer running Explorer that hasn’t been updated, never had the cache cleaned, and it’s a slow, clunky, old beast. In fact, some people don’t even have the fastest Internet they can have even if it’s available – which I don’t understand," Schramko recalls.
These days, business owners can have fast, modern equipment for just a few thousand dollars — a small price to pay to become productive and serious about business. With the best computers, speedy Internet connection, and multimedia equipment, not to mention high quality furnishings such as the best quality chairs, desks, and large screens, anyone can experience working comfortably and efficiently in a well-equipped space.
To continue his productivity tips, another business update video from the seasoned Internet marketer showcased his personal choice of computing equipment: from using Apple's MacBook Air and iMac computers (which he admits he has used to their very limits), Schramko announced his decision to upgrade to a new 13-inch MacBook Pro Retina. This laptop's RAM can be made up to 8 gigabytes, its hard drive is 756 gigabytes, it can be used with an external 27-inch Thunderbolt screen, and it has the portability to fit into a backpack during travels. More importantly, the MacBook Pro Retina has the power and extra resolution that will enable the CEO to create, edit and render videos seamlessly.
"Get yourself the right gear and set your environment up for success," Schramko encourages. "Remove the paper, remove the distractions, and when it all comes down to it, you know what you have to do: roll up your sleeves and do the work that’s gonna get you the results you want."
