A while ago on Facebook, I posed the question, “You know it’s time to tidy your desk when…” and there were some interesting responses.

For most, the act of tidying a desk is boring, if not excruciating.  Here’s a list of 10 things to do while you tidy your desk:

  1. Sing
  2. Dance
  3. Listen to a teleclass or podcast
  4. Facebook
  5. Wait by the phone on hold
  6. Gossip on the phone
  7. Daydream
  8. Light a candle and create some Zen
  9. Eat lunch
  10. Go shopping!  (This one is for anyone who believes as I do that D is for Delegate.  Just get someone else to do it for you 😉 )

So, however you do it, make time to tidy your desk.  It will pay off in the long run.

    11. Memorize the capitals of all the states (or provinces, or whatever)
    12. Try to recite, in order, the names of every boy (or girl) you ever kissed.
    13. Name prime numbers, in order.
    14. Do calf stretches/stand on tiptoe/do pliés

    (How do you dance and tidy a desk at the same time?

    Yes, Julie! I like the way you think.

    We should also add
    15. Do pelvic floor exercises

    And when the music is good, nothing can stop me wiggling my hips. 😉
