Ever try to get some work done and get distracted by the things around you? Or can’t find the remote because it’s buried under a pile of mail? What about when you’re on the phone and need to find that piece of paper with the requested information? You’re sifting through the junk on your tabletop, creating an even wider mess.

I find that when my room is a mess, or my desk is covered in papers, I have trouble thinking clearly. That’s not to say I’m a neat freak; it’s just easier to think in a cleaner area.

A clean room is a peaceful room.
