Checklist for an effective home study

  • Writing tools - paper, pen, pencils, computer.
  • Ready access to great books - ideas, reminders, diversions,
  • Music - A home study should be a music room.
  • No television - worthless distraction.
  • Domesticated animal(s) - they handle rants, reading aloud and musical tastes better than humans.
  • Comfortable seating - even if a domesticated animal is resting squarely behind your head.
  • Varied lighting - windows, task lighting and room lighting for all situations.
  • Busts of the dead - Inspiration (note to self: bring busts to home office).
  • Table space - places to put things.
  • Art - to stare at while thinking.
Long ago, I gave up hopes of smoking cigars inside (ahh, for the perfect study).  Others?
