We wish our desk at work looked like this – minus the post cards because they don’t make any sense – but alas you get the desk you’re given, right?
Still, there are some things we would all do well to remember:
1. Avoid decorating your desk with “recycling bin” chic. Ie. 1 million stacks of paper every where makes you look crazy, and homeless.
2. Limit active post-its to 5. If you need more, make some of those reminders digital – outlook is great for that.
3. Your desk is not your facebook wall. 1 personal picture or less. Definitely no pictures of you when you were a baby.
4. Plants – yes if you have an office, small one/none if you have a cubicle.
