Working with hand grenades

October 9th 2008 in Workspaces

I’ve been looking through old photos of my work area, and they’ve been anything but clean. It seems I get more accomplished (I hope) when my work area looks like a grenade went off on it. Every cubicle, office or home office I’ve worked in has been thrashed.Survey the damage from 3 examples, over 3 years:

Bomb one

Bomb two

Bomb three

So how about the rest of you? Does a clean workspace make you more productive, or the messier the better?

By then of course I have no time to clean up until the I finish my project.

I have a 2 G4s and G5 with a special guest star appearance by my macbook pro.
The KVM switch makes them all place nice.
As long as you are happy and productive.
I like the Mac under the desk, mine are the desk.
