An interesting article was published on Extreme Tech this week that argues that “messier” people are more productivity than extremely organized people. The article argues that “organized chaos” allows you to be more efficient and productive. Taking the time to stay organized everyday takes time and money, but letting your work stay where it ends up lets you get into a better workflow and switch between tasks seamlessly. I think the argument is interesting and counter intuitive to many things I’ve been taught. Give the article a read and please share your opinion in the comments. Are messy people really more productive than organized people?
“Most of us are messy, and most of us are messy at a level that works very, very well for us,” [...] “In most cases, if we got a lot neater and more organized, we would be less effective.”
