BEHIND MY MESSY DESK

My desk is a mess.  But, it’s my mess, and it feels very in-control to me. When you regularly  fail to put things in their designated place,  you  have  be creative figuring out ways to make it all fit.

A recent study suggests that working in a sloppy setting may actually help inspire creative thinking. The researchers found a messy desk is a sign of an innovative mind at work, not a chaotic one.

“Disorderly environments seem to inspire breaking free of tradition,” Dr. Vohs and her co-authors concluded in the study, “which can produce fresh insights.” So for now I will remain here behind my messy desk.
