Key Ideas

Being Messy Works

While most of us strive towards neatness, being super organized and tidy isn’t always possible. Being unorganized and messy, on the other hand, comes easy to most. 

Studies are pointing out a link towards being messy and being creative, with chaos and clutter fostering new connections and creative insights.

Clutter: Catalyst To Creativity

Being in a mess is akin to breaking free of rules, norms and expectations, and the unkemptness lends itself to the flowing of mind’s juices. Keeping things tidy and cleaning up all the time can also hamper productivity by being a form of procrastination.

A mess can be looked upon as a wildness, a certain freedom of the mind.

1. Rewrite It

Spend 5 minutes each morning preparing your task list to have only accomplishable tasks that fit the time you have available. Keep other tasks on a holding list for another day.

2. Be Laser Focused

Set a timer for 15 minutes, shut out the world and concentrate with intense focus on one and only one task. Closing your door and turning off your phone and internet are specially important.

3. Let Go Of Tasks

Recognize that not everything in your list must be done. When in doubt, delete it from your list; if it is important you’ll eventually add it back.

Select the area that you would like to generate the idea in.  Define it clearly and be as specific as possible.
