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:
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.
