“The main principle here is to minimise the number of items you keep on your desk.”
“The best way to keep things on your desktop to a minimum is to only give something a permanent place on your desktop if you use it more than once a day.”
The things he lists that you need to have or might find useful to have on your desk, that would apply to me in addition to my MacBook are:
- Pad of paper
- Pen and pencil (lying flat)
- Decorations (just don’t overdo it)
Where do these things go?
“Everything goes on the left side [of the desk] and the right side remains open.”
