The desk at which I’m currently standing to type these words does not have enough empty space for a single sheet of letter-size paper, a fact that perturbs me every time I have documents to review or sign. I’m sorry to say that would be true even if I removed every superfluous object from the desktop—it’s just a small desk and I have a lot of tech that needs to be on it. Even so, I plan to take a few minutes today to relocate all those nonessential items, because visual clutter is distracting and I’d rather not be distracted. It’s National Clean Off Your Desk Day, so do yourself a favor and find a better home for all those things that don’t need to be on your desk. (Hey, you can do the same thing with your computer’s desktop—an excellent idea.) Good luck!
