Life hacks (Productivity): Clean Up!
Rafael Gurkovsky, Life Hacks
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:
So basically, what you can do is clean your desk but don't leave it completely devoid of anything. For some people, a stack of paperwork on their desk helps to constantly remind them that there's still work to be done. Hence, this is really a judgement call on your part. My advice- remove the clutter an see what happens.
