In this video David Allenshows us his desk and the way he organizes his work. I highly recommend listening to his Getting Things Done audio-book. It’s very easy to listen to (I did it while traveling by train) and a great guide to get organized and do so much more in less time. Being organized also makes you think less about ‘stuff that doesn’t matter’ so you have more time to create whatever you want and you’ll be more creative because your mind is more quiet.
