calling… to clean up

2015_02_21

“If a cluttered desk is a sign of cluttered mind, of what, then is an empty desk a sign?” – Albert Einstein. An empty desk is different from a clean desk. Hoarding is a disorder and, with so much going on at the same time in our lives these days, it is easy to get our minds entangled. We don’t all have to be “queen standard” clean but we should all keep decent organized spaces and minds. We need to have only a few targets so that we can retain some focus. Our e-Lives have been flooded with infinite storage room and too many suppliers to choose from. Our computers have now so much storage and searching capabilities that we basically throw things in the disks and the web without caring to organize them. Our minds become lazy and undisciplined. One curious human behavior is that if you see yourself surrounded by a mess you will, on average, be more prone to mess it up more. So, if all of us make small steps towards cleaning up our public spaces, the whole horde will tend to adjust and move in a slightly more civilized way. We don’t want a Start Trek clean society but it is easier to please larger groups with some organization than with chaos. Einstein didn’t have a chance to meet the e-Desktop but then again he was not the “standard” Joe. Not all of us were made to juggle cluttered thoughts. And, today, cluttered is more a sign of abundance and lack of adequate valuing. calling… for some order.
