Messy Desk, Messy Day

A Messy desk can be a symptom of an unfocused day. Although it’s inevitable that stacks of papers will pile up and to do lists grow long, as a leader often our “desk” sets the tone for the building. When you find yourself buried in paperwork and unable to get organized, there’s a good chance you are spending your day putting out fires. When those fires consume our day, we are no longer leading but following smoke. Take away? Keep an eye out for the messy office syndrome and take a moment to get back on track. Your staff will appreciate the sense of calm you provide.
