For those that know me, you probably know that I am a very organised person - on the inside.
Outwardly I am an incredibly messy worker, in fact I might even have the messiest desk in the section. I don't like having a messy desk, when I am busy, it just happens.
Now you know that about me, it might suprise you to know that yesterday I tidied my desk. Perhaps I shouldn't openly admit to you all that it took the best part of 4 hours. I am finding it amusing that everyone who walks past is complimenting me like I am a child.
I find the trick to having a clean desk is to remove everything in your IN tray and place it in the recycle bin.
I guess the downside of having a clean desk is that now I am feeling very exposed. Particularly as I had a pile of boxes on the desk to the left of me, providing an accidental, yet very effective screen.
Here is my tidy desk. See how it sparkles?
