Today over at The Golden Pencil, author, Anne Wayman wrote about how she worked better when her desk was tidy. This topic motivated me to analyze what I keep on my desk. It's probably safe to say that I won't be needing that spool of Christmas ribbon sitting on the corner.
I am moving my office out of the garage, and am a little obsessed (Yes, I've been promoted to the big house) with organizing files, moving supplies, assembling office furniture (which will be in a later post). I started a new business so I deserve a new office, besides, this way the kids can't move back in.Anne commented that a tidy, organized desk contributes to her motivation to expand her writing business and is a win-win situation by any standards. This really resonated with me.
However, some people work better in confusion and clutter rather than neatness. What works best for you? I know I am calmer when everything in my office is put away and organized.
Write it down,
