'X' marks the spot — the sweet spot provided by Darrin Zeer's guide to office feng shui.

Desktop Map of Success
Though your desk has limited space, it is one area in the office where you can freely make feng shui enrichments.

For this book I've created a Desktop Map of Success, which is divided into five interrelated circles. The five circles are called Calm, Courage, Care, Connections, and Creativity. These are the cornerstones of a successful career.

Cricle of Calm (bottom left of desk)
When you're calm and focused, you will succeed in all your projects.

Circle of Courage (top left of desk)
It takes courage to tackle all the work challenges that you face day after day.

Circle of Care (top right of desk)
Demonstrate care and compassion for yourself and those you work with.

Circle of Connections (bottom right of desk)
When you reach out, you can make powerful contacts with clients, coworkers, and everyone else you interact with.

Circle of Creativity (center of the desk)
When all of the other desktop circles are in balance, you will have unlocked the key to unlimited creativity. Let this creative-power spot in the center of your desk be the launchpad for your success.

Office Bagua Map
One of the most important tools in feng shui philosophy is the bagua map.

For centuries, feng shui practitioners have used the bagua map to outline areas of a room that represent different aspects of your life. The map divides space into nine compartments to analyze the creative forces surrounding us. SImply look around your office space and locate the different areas on the map. To line up the Office Bagua Map correctly with your office, align your front door with one of the bottom three map areas, Wisdom, Career, or Contacts...
