I have a theory.
Your work space is either set up in such a way as to invite you in and support you in what you are doing, or it is somewhere else on the spectrum up to and including compelling you to run screaming from the building!
It has been documented that many of us will spend at least one hour a day looking for things.
If you set up your office (or wherever you work) to work FOR you (rather than AGAINST you), you can eliminate most of that time.
What you need will be where you need it when you need it.
Please note, this does NOT mean a huge amorphous pile on your desk! You may be able to reach into the pile and pull out just the piece of paper you are looking for, but if anyone else touches the pile (or if gravity attacks and the pile cascades over) you are in real trouble.
Take some time to figure out what you need for your space to be truly functional, and make a plan to get your space in shape. (Hint: There are people who will help with this. You don’t have to do it on your own.)
