Over the years we've had lots of great feedback about our standing desks. We find that no matter which UpDesk people use they experience an increase in their productivity and their sense of well-being while at work. Many folks are so excited about this that they want to share their experience with us. At UpDesk we get a lot of this kind of fan mail. While there's no way for us to share it all with you we did want to share a few inspirational quotes (none of which are authentic) that reflect the way many UpDesk users feel about their desks.
"Two roads diverged in a wood and I—I took the one less traveled because I needed a new desk and at the end of that less-traveled road I could see a very sharp-looking UpWrite desk in a midnight black finish. And that has made all the difference." - R. Frost
"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. But that's not why I succeed. I succeed because my UpWrite computer desk can accommodate my treadmill and that allows me to get a great workout while still being productive in the office." - M. Jordan
"The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. Coincidentally that was also the best time to start using a standing desk. The second best time to plant a tree (or to start using a standing desk) is now." - Ancient Chinese Proverb
"Eighty percent of success is showing up. The other twenty percent is showing up to a workspace that has an adequately-sized desk made of durable high-pressure laminate. And that's why I write all my screenplays while standing (and occasionally sitting) at my SquaredUp desk." - W. Allen
"Whether you think you can or you think you can't you're right. And whether you think you can work best at an office desk that's 24.5" high or at an office desk that's 50.5" high you're right." - H. Ford
"It's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years and whether or not you spend a healthy amount of those years standing at an ergonomically-designed yet affordable office desk like the CrankUp." - A. Lincoln
"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results even though you're not using a standing computer desk." - A. Einstein
Okay we admit: We made some pretty heavy modifications to these quotes. But trust us: After a few weeks at one of our standing desks you'll agree with Thomas Jefferson who supposedly said "Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us but is always the result of a good conscience good health occupation and an UpDesk.
