A mess is a mark of creativity

  • Lawrence J. Peter famously asked, "If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?"
  • Albert Einstein had a messy desk, so did innovative thinkers, such as Thomas Edison and Steve Jobs.
  • One study confirmed that students working in disorderly spaces came up with more creative ideas than those in clean areas. Clutter then causes more stress for some people, while others can cope with it.

"Cleanliness is next to godliness," theologian John Wesley said in a sermon.

Organized, comfortable areas that feel inviting make for more productive environments than chaotic and messy ones.
