Live-in desk has to go!

Posted on Fri, Oct 5, 2012 at 12:49 PM

The office in general, and the desk/cubby assigned to you is not your home, or personal property. It is not meant to be a shrine of personal nicknacks, photos, dirty dishes, stacks of old newspapers, piles of dis-guarded shoes/clothes and god knows what else. I'm not against having a gym bag tucked under your desk and a few photos of your kids/dog/lover tacked up or in frames, but there is a definite line between personalizing and making your desk your second home. Every day I have to walk clients past your sad mess of space and I can only imagine what they are thinking. I know what I am thinking "What a unprofessional atmosphere. That person is a slob, disorganized and probably lazy...I wouldn't want them handling my business." I'm guessing they are thinking along the same lines, so clean up your act, leave your personal shit at home and try to make a better impression on the unfortunate souls that have to walk by your garbage heap of a desk. —Leave Home at Home
