Halloween is the one day of the year when we have fun with “scary things.” But what if your desk was a scary thing 365 days a year? If you want to get rid of that messy desk once and for all, this post is for you.

What does your desk look like right now? Maybe like the one above? What impression does it give visitors?

  • You are a busy person?
  • Maybe overwhelmed?
  • The desk is a dumping ground?

Suppose your desk looked like this:

Clean desk


Better? What message does this one communicate?

  • In control?
  • Can find things?
  • Peace & calm?

If you have heard me speak or read any of my books, you are familiar with the tickler file, that magic set of folders that keeps the desk clean and delivers papers to you when you need them.

Michael Janatovich reviewed the 2nd edition of Get Organized! Time Management for School Leaders just after its release. The interesting thing is that he didn’t just read the book before reviewing it. He implemented what he read and then wrote about the results.
