Recently I came to the realization that my house was just too cluttered. So I’ve embarked on a massive project to de-clutter the place.

That’s all about creating more living space.But there is always something going on in my office, and there are always several new and interesting things sitting on my desk. And apparently that’s ok:

An anti-anticlutter movement is afoot, one that says yes to mess and urges you to embrace your disorder. Studies are piling up that show that messy desks are the vivid signatures of people with creative, limber minds (who reap higher salaries than those with neat “office landscapes”) and that messy closet owners are probably better parents and nicer and cooler than their tidier counterparts. It’s a movement that confirms what you have known, deep down, all along: really neat people are not avatars of the good life; they are humorless and inflexible prigs, and have way too much time on their hands.

My office isn’t "messy", but there is a lot going on there. And my life isn’t organized; it’s flexible and I prefer it that way.

Serendipity has always been more fun for me.
