artists are often messy but does messy hold you back

Minimalism. Decluttering. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie KondoAll the rage, right? Is there any room for messy creatives like us in this organization-obsessed world?

If your desk is a disaster zone, you’re in good company. Albert Einstein defended his notoriously messy desk, remarking, “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, then what are we to think of an empty desk?” Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, and Mark Twain are also known for their less-than-tidy workspace.

Does this mean you should high-five your messy tendencies? Maybe. A few questions to consider before you add another folder or post it note to the stacks of paper, knickknacks, and trash already on your desk.

Is your messiness significantly impacting your productivity?

Is your messiness significantly impacting your quality of work?

Is your messiness significantly impacting your quality of life?

If you’ve answered yes to these questions, it may be time to make some changes, especially if it’s affecting your business.

On the other hand, perhaps you’re starting organization projects because you’re procrastinating on real work that needs to be done. If so, then it’s time to let it go, embrace the chaos, buckle down, and get to work.

It’s a busy time of year, especially for photographers. Hang in there. You’ll soon have a bit of time to gain fresh perspective, to find your voice again, to develop your style, to push some boundaries, to pursue some projects. In the meantime, we challenge you to take five minutes to take out your camera and capture something  just for you.
