Life hacks (Productivity): Clean Up!
Ok, so opinions for this one are also divided. Basically, the idea is to get rid of any clutter on your desk before starting work. Wit a clean and orderly desk, there's really nothing else for you to do but focus on the work. Of course, don't forget the Einstein quote:
[Javits Wild] When he was in the country, he always asked the people he chanced to meet what "normal life" was like, because he had forgotten. The answers varied, and he gradually came to realize that, even when he was surrounded by other people, he was absolutely alone in the world. He decided to draw up a list of what constituted normal attitudes and behavior, based on what people did rather than on what they said.
- Normal is anything that makes us forget who we are and what we want; that way we can work in order to produce, reproduce, and earn money.
- Setting out rules for waging war (the Geneva Convention).
- Spending years studying at university only to find at the end of it all that you're unemployable.
