My inspiration comes from an excellent article by Mikael Cho at OOOMF.com. The article is "How Clutter Affects you and what you can do about it."
This article inspired me to:
- Remove all the "eye candy" except one painting from the wall I face while working at my desk
- Remove 90% of the stuff from my desk top - moving the "Must Have" items our of my line of sight on my wrap around desk.
- Remove (move) almost all of the icons from my Windows Desktop
- Post my 3 top weekly goals as the only significant item in my line of sight (other than monitors, phone, keyboard, and mouse.
SO far, I have noticed that my mind wanders less and stays on task more. This is a very good thing!
I recommend both Mikael's article and this approach
Now - if I can just remove all the interruptions!
