Scientists have reported that a messy desk can help you to think more clearly, making you more efficient. It looks like Einstein has been right all along.

"If a cluttered desk signs a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?"
- Albert Eintein

It's interesting as the results goes against what we're taught throughout most of our lives, be it in school or via clean desk policies at work. It even goes against the application of the 5S in an office environment, which many Japanese companies seem to favour.
