The messy desk

The messy desk is not necessarily a sign of disorganization. It may be a sign of complexity: those who deal with many unresolved ideas simultaneously cannot sort and file the papers on their desks because they haven’t yet sorted and filed the ideas in their head.
Malcolm Gladwell, "The Social Life of Paper," The New Yorker, March 25, 2002, at 92, 93.
