Many people hate messy desks, I myself hate coming to a desk that is messy, unorganised and all over the place, it makes me want to instantly clean it up.

“If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?”

einsteins-desk

The famous quote by Albert Einstein that is debated in this day and age. You can agree or dis-agree, a person that has a tidy desk can be organised, they could have their “to-do” list written down on paper or or their laptop, stating down what needs to be done and what time. Whereas a messy desk a person could have tasks written down all over their desk, with paper flying around, they look far more productive but are they being efficient?

When the famous Einstein was no more blessing the world, a famous picture was taken of his office desk and his desk was covered! every last inch of his desk had paper, there was not even one place that was spare, paper, paper and paper everywhere! The famous Einstein had a creative mind, if he did not have a messy mind it can be argued he may have not think of all the ideas he had.

A recent study conducted by research and studies of creative figures found that the right amount of messy desk can help to bring the creative side of a person. With a messy desk, it may look messy to the eye but to the desk user, it is a creative cave, everything is systematically layed out in the precise way so they can think deeper.

Yes a desk is messy if there are banana peelings left around everywhere, you have apple cores lying around and food all over the place.
