Practical Feng Shui for the Office:
Finding Your individual Balance in the Workplace
by Kathryn Wilking
“I have met with so many people in the last few years who apologize for their office. Apologize? For what? Well, a lot of them are embarrassed. They don’t really like their workspace. The problem is in the flow, the routine and the organization of their work. Feng shui can help you with all of these things. A feng shui office will give you a balanced flow of energy so you can accomplish the tasks of the day. The goal is to make your time more productive and more functional.

The Command Position and its complexities refer back to an ancient Chinese model, as explained in Appendix A. When you find your Command Position, you automatically become safe (your back is protected), you have control (have your sight lines defined) and you are out of the way of distractions.
