So many of you out there have probably shifted before. Might be your house or your office, but most of you could relate to the joys that is shifting.
As a veteran shifter (I’ve moved 11 times in 10 years), I fully appreciate the joys of moving the home or office. Today, we’ve started the packing process of moving the DGM Advertising office, as we eagerly anticipate a moving to our new office in Abbotsford. The move in terms of distance isn’t huge a mere 9km if you’re counting.
I’m fascinated that within five minutes of starting to pack the whole office is a complete shambles, boxes all over the place, making even the most hardened OHS officer cringe, phones on the wrong desk, computers all over the place furniture moved at the oddest angles.
Despite a seemingly clean office, the dust billows into the air as spaces that haven’t seen the light in three years are suddenly exposed. The number of sneezes is increasingly faster that we can say, ‘bless you.’
There’s nothing particularly fun about moving. Packing, finding boxes, sorting through all the stuff you’ve accumulated over the years and having to clean it out. (As a sentimentalist, I find it particularly difficult parting with things).
What I love most despite the craziness of moving, is how everyone in the business is still working despite the chaos around them. People are taking calls standing up or on foreign desks, even in the kitchen. Our laptop users are moving around the office, and everyone is still doing their tasks as per usual.
I also love the excited vibe in the office. There is the feeling that something is happening.
Despite the dust and the chaos, we’re looking forward to the new office and can’t wait to be in our new studio. We’ll keep you all posted about the move, so stay tuned.
