Tips to Declutter Your Desk

Every ADHDer has their own style. How do you like to work? Do you thrive on multiple deadlines at once, juggling lots of meetings and even more projects? Or do you like to hyperfocus on a single project at a time, clearing broad swaths of your schedule to focus on that one thing (and tuning out what’s going on around you)?

Whatever style you prefer, you need a desk or table space to work. And the state of that desk and of your office (or cube) can play more of a part in how you feel and how effective you are than you realize. That’s because clutter and messes can rob you of your daily productivity and affect creativity too.

Perhaps you haven’t tackled the mess in front of you because you’re afraid it’ll take too much time—and time is something you don’t have to spare. But I’ll bet you that cleaning up the mess on your desk would improve your productivity, creativity and overall zen that you’d come out ahead in the long run. This graphic offers some good ways to work on your desk mess.
