    I need to print this and post it at my desk… since I get many comments about the sad (creative) state of my desk space.

    Thanks!!! This made my day. Printing this out and posting it at my “messy desk!!!”

    An empty desk is the sign of someone without a job.
    I can end up with a bunch of stuff going on all over my desk, but I try and keep it in neat piles. That said never clean your desk off totally or people will start asking questions.

    My desk has always been spotless wherever I have worked and I have always been the most productive member of the office.

      Productivity does not necessarily = creativity

    @Tim – Good point, well made. I haven’t been creative since university. Spent 20 years churning out the same old crap. Maybe I should mess up my desk, see if it gets the dormant creative juices flowing!
    Saying that, my colleague’s desk is a mess and he’s less creative than me. Swings and roundabouts.
