Is your desk organized or messy? There are advantages to both
How would you describe your desk? Neat and tidy, organized chaos, or something in-between?
What you do at your desk contributes to its overall appearance. If your work involves stacks of paper and filing it will be much more challenging for you to maintain order than it will be for someone who works strictly on their laptop and files everything digitally.
Whether your desk is in order or in a state of disarray, there are positives to each work system. Studies show that messy desks can inspire creativity while tidy workers may make more generous and healthy decisions.
