How Clean is Your Desk?

Did you know that according to the National Center of Health, the average keyboard has 400 times the number of bacteria on it than your average toilet? That’s a whole lot of YUCK!

While giving your keyboard a nice cleaning is good for your health, keeping a clean desk, free of germs and clutter, has other benefits to it.

  • You’ll be less distracted.
  • You don’t have to waste time looking for things.
  • It can improve productivity and morale.

While I’m not discounting the importance of a framed photo of your wife, dog or favorite child, too many personal items can leave you feeling overwhelmed amidst the clutter.

So take a minimalistic approach to your desk while taking a few minutes at the end of your day to tidy up your desk, put things away and give it a once over with an antibacterial wipe. Then you’ll come back tomorrow to a fresh, neat desk ready to make the world a better place… or plot to take over the galaxy… whichever suits you best.

Until next time, may the Force be with you.
