Scrolling Forward

This may be more appropriate in my personal blog, but this sentence just tickled me so -

"It is the rare person who isn't somewhat traumatized by the state of his or her desk." (pp.122)

How true. It seems no matter what organization scheme I think of for my desk, within a matter of weeks (ok, ok - days) it reverts to the status quo of books, papers, and post-its multiplying all over.

Just a little observation/rant I wanted to share.

I like to think that like the author, I work better that way. I know where everything is. It simply doesn't appear organized. But I to attempt to "clean" it up only to see it disheveled days later.

My desk at work is next to a coworker who teaches how to "de-clutter" at the local community college. I constantly feel the need to explain why my desk looks the way it does.

My boss, with an extremely unorganized desk, claims that creative people work differently. She also said- just because you have a tidy desk doesn't mean you actually get anything done.

However, just because we have excuses and pithy explanations for why our desk is cluttered, doesn't necessarily make it a good thing....Desk, what desk?
