My biggest weakness is my biggest frustration in making my home office a comfortable place to work & play. I think I have cords and cables running out of my ears when I walk into this place. I have my desk in the middle of the office so I don't feel totally claustrophobic- or wet myself when someone sneaks up on me from behind.

Unfortunately, the builders and previous owners of the house did not put several electrical floor outlets around my desk so I must get the power from the walls to the middle. {You don't find many basements in Texas so it is not very easy to retrofit.}

My power cords are a trip hazard - learned from experience many times (slow learner I guess). Then I purchased a cable safety strip made using heavy duty vinyl. There are various sizes, lengths, and colors available.

Overall, I would say it has reduced my trip potential. It is easier to slide over the rubber hump than various loose cords, but the hump is too large for my pleasure. Plus it doesn't conceal as well as I would like. This is a good but not great solution for my long-term office satisfaction.
