Working in a clutter
New research has gone further than ever before in suggesting that tidy people "get more done".
Apparently those people who clear their entire desks at least once a day, spend up to 30% less time searching for specific items and documents during the main part of their working hours. So assuming that most office based workers spend 8 hours a day at their desks, the research suggests that an organized person will be able to squeeze around two and a half hours more work out of each day.
A person who is working in a clutter will work two to three hours less a day.
