Recently I saw the photo below, and was greatly encouraged.
I also read the list below, and was further encouraged:
FAMOUS MESSY DESK PEOPLE:
- Albert Einstein
- Abraham Lincoln
- Sigmund Freud
According to David Freedman, co-author of A Perfect Mess, “Some people claim that having a messy desk is a sign of being a more creative person. I don't think it's true that someone who has a very neat desk is necessarily an uncreative person, and I've seen accountants with very messy desks and artists with extremely neat desks. But it's true that creativity is largely about making surprising connections, and a messy desk is certainly a way of mixing and matching things in sometimes interesting ways.”
And if you think you are so messy you qualify for major help, you may find it at Messies Anonymous.
How does your desk look today? Do you have areas of your life that are messy, and others neat, like me? What do you think this says about us?
