Hang Welcome and Do Not Disturb Signs
While having coworkers stop by your cube to talk about their weekend or rant about their work assignments can be a welcome break from your workload, there are times you just need to buckle down and focus.
This is hard to do with constant distractions.
For these situations, having a sign that says “Visitors Welcome” on one side and “Do Not Disturb” on the other can help save you from awkwardly asking your friends to leave when you’re trying to make a deadline.
Make a decorative sign yourself with a friendly message and post it in a visible area at your cube.
For a more professional appearance, have a formal cubicle sign made at an office supply store.
