How does your work area look? Is your desk a mess? The picture I used in this post is my desk. It’s where I sit. Now, if I were to put a picture of Paul’s desk on here, you’d never be able to see the desk. He, like all the other people in this clip, say he knows where everything is and if it’s put away, they can’t find anything.
Frankly, I think that’s just an excuse. This guy dug “way down deep” if you watch that video, and he found mail or something he worked on from 2007. Seriously? I find that just being a slob. I can see if you have papers you’re working on around you but things you’re done with or food or empty cans and bottles?? I think that’s crossing another line.
I could personally care less what other people’s desks look like as long as I don’t have to see it or live with it in my home. Paul’s desk at work and his desk at home look NOTHING alike. Nobody can move anything on his desk either! Alrightythen.
If I were hiring someone and saw one neat desk and one huge mess and if it was a close race, I’d pick the neat person because I think when things really are in their place, you can find them a lot faster and with more efficiency. Finding something under a mound of paperwork from 2007 is just a lucky grab.
What does your work space look like? Do you think it’s learned behavior? What did your parents works pace look like?
