Your desk is your give away!
What goes on your desk, tells us a lot about what kind of a person you are. How do you think, how do you work, what excites you, what you dislike and also how you maybe showing up in the other areas of your life. After all, there is much truth in these lines – How you do one thing is how you do everything.
From the way I see it, I feel there are four kinds of desks you may come across. Each one indicates a different aspect about a personality and helping you change the way your desk looks could create massive impact in your productivity. Read on to know how.
- A cluttered desk – This one is represented by an overload of things on the desk – right from stationery, to hanging wires from your computer, coasters, knick knacks like picture frames, layers of dust under your keyboard, a used coffee mug, sipper, a watch, maybe your wallet, a key chain – all left around in that one spot until the owner needs to move it or use it.
What it says about the user – This maybe a person who is high on procrastination, will focus only on what’s urgent, may have a confused mind, erratic thinking patterns and is usually restless, perhaps clumsy too.
2. A clean desk – where everything has a space of its own. You may see pen holders, small boxes to hold little things like pen drives, your visiting cards, a coaster appropriately placed below your coffee mug, picture frame kept straight, dust free table top, wires are neatly bundled to the side, nothing is strewn around for want of a proper place, but there is a lot on the table.
What it says about the user – Here is a person who is organized, stable in his thinking, has his priorities list at hand, is well dressed, carries himself with confidence, relaxes easily and has an overall pleasant personality.
3. A messy desk – things you need and those you don’t are all mixed into a spaghetti of sorts. You don’t have time to give away that which you no longer need, or dispose the unnecessary papers and discard old cables, defective pen drives, empty pens, pencil stubs and so on.
What it says about the user – This is a dangerous breed. You may find this user to be sporadic, short tempered or too lazy to even respond to a message on most days, with too many things on the mind, a confused list of priorities, low sense of time management and constantly rushing against time. Can you imagine some people you know with a messy desk? (lol)
4. A minimal desk – has everything you need, neatly placed in drawers, boxes and files. This is a distraction free desk. You may see only a picture frame with loved ones in it, a coffee mug, and a wire free desktop or laptop, clean table top is a given. The owner of this desk will have stringent acceptance rules for any item to go on the desk until and unless it is important, a must have or is beautifully designed, a gift from a loved one and meaningful.
What it says about the user – This is the kind of person everyone likes to be around. Always on top of things, the mindful and thinking kind, high on productivity, good decision maker, understands that a clean environment is imperative for creative work to happen.
