What your workspace says about you… Insane or genius?

I was showing some office space for lease to a prospective tenant recently and both my client and I were in shock by the clutter and disorganization of the work space. The current occupant was not in the process of moving. You could tell this was how they operated on a day to day basis. To make matters worse the occupant of the space is a “consultant” who’s in the business of attracting new business in an industry where you would think organization and appearances would matter.

My client commented “how does anyone ever hire these people?” I’m guessing they must meet their clients a Java Moose to pitch their business. That being said… I read an article in Globe and Mail which made me question my belief that an uncluttered desk = uncluttered mind and increased productivity. Perhaps this consultant is actually a genius?

“If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, then what are we to think of an empty desk?” ~ Albert Einstein

What do you think?
