As most do, I believe that a well-utilized desk area is crucial to a good work environment. As my old math teacher taught me: “there is a direct line of memory from the end of your pencil to your brain.” This works the same way with computers. If you do not have a clean, well-maintained desk area, you will not be happy with your work, therefore you will not do your work well. If you have a lot of clutter, it is going to make your mind think that it is in a hectic environment and it needs to drop what it’s doing and leave.
I simply cannot stress the fact that you need an evenly spread out desk area with limited clutter. A good way to reduce clutter and optimize space is to use drawers; I use a stand that has two pockets on the side. I place my laptop on one side of the desk, and my monitor for my desktop on the complete opposite corner of the other table. This gives me an environment optimal for work and play.
