How tightly organized should I be? Enough to pass a white glove test? No. That’s not going to happen, and imposing that ideal on myself is actually counter-productive. So, I stay organized enough to achieve my goals. Today, I achieve what I’m after, stacks and all. I’m OK with it. I have things I love around me, like photos, drawings and Disney Vinylmations. It’s working and, more importantly, I am.

This is a great writeup from Dave Caolo. He just recently discussed his diagnosis of Adult ADD, and had a series of posts on 52Tiger that detail the iOS apps that he uses to keep his ADD in check.
The recent rash of pics that show pristine desktops with nothing on them is fine for some people. I am glad that Dave is bucking the trend for the rest of us to feel proud that we have messy desktops and we are still productive!
