Where you work affects how you work. Working in a cluttered, messy, or distracting environment will affect your work, and probably in a negative way. If you're like the average knowledge worker, you spend most of your time sitting in front of a computer screen.
You may think that you don't have time for office organization, but if you really knew how much time that disorganization cost you, you'd reconsider. Rearranging and moving piles occasionally doesn't count. Neither does clearing off your desk, if you swipe the mess into a bin, or a desk drawer.
The general condition of your living environment affects your personal productivity. Working in a clustered and messy environment has the ability to keep you distracted and in most cases, create negative energy. While some might give excuses about their space limitations, there are creative ways to keep your pace neat and organized while staying productive.
