Cluttered Desk…Cluttered Mind?

Yesterday morning I walked into my office & it was a mess, because I didn’t take the time to tidy up the day before.

Have a look at this …

Most of you have heard the quote – “Cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind”

And the other quote – “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, what’s an empty desk is a sign of?” – Albert Einstein.

My kids do agree with Einstein, for obvious reasons.

For me, I like to have a tidy desk. I feel cluttered and cannot think straight when I have clutter on my desk. Saying that, I know of people working with so many piles of paper on their desks, but when they need something they exactly know where it is.

I believe it is a personal choice.

One thing to remember is not to make de-cluttering your office as an excuse for your procrastination. I know this because I have done this.

Some would say that organizing your office is not a productive task and you may want to do some marketing and lead generation during that time.

Yes, it is not directly productive and not a money making activity, but if you cannot think clearly with all the mess around you, it is necessary to clear it up before beginning any other productive task.

I believe, De-cluttering your MIND is more important than de-cluttering your desk. That’s a topic for another day!

    Man can I agree with this post! I hate a cluttered desk, but for some reason it gets that way. I think I need to take a few hours and get it back in order so I can start to feel 'uncluttered' while I work.
