  • You are assuming I can find my desk aren't you? Well I can not the only reason I have slightest idea of it's exact location is by the height of papers piled up on it is the highest point of my office. I have worked from home with separate home office space a separate room of 12 feet by 25 feet and there are days when I can not find the door to get out. Now this mine an office that would be in an office building, oh heavens forbid I'd be fired or have fired myself decades ago. I have tried everything that every professional has suggested or that worse piad to teach me what I simply can not bring myself to do. That is all there is to it, Either one can or one can not just not keep it clean an neat no matter how much I desire wish and try to maintain any level of order but so far 25b years and counting forget about it....never going to happen unless I win a contest where a professional gets to spend actual time with me and has manged to wipe my memories away and start all over. Otherwise I am convinced it is about personality types then retrain ones brain for I have tried way too hard for way too ,long to accomplish a full week of no messy desk. Open to ideas help or whatever anyone can donate to help otherwise consider this a simple post on the fact I am not a clean desk person and why.
