Organization is a form of procrastination. You can spend hours every day organizing things instead of getting real work done. With a messy desk, you naturally organize your work in a way that reflects how your mind works. When your desk is messy, you may actually be more efficient and effective than if you're organized.
Everything's in front of you. People with messy desks may actually be less prone to procrastination. That's because your papers are all in front of you, not filed away in a filing cabinet where they'll be easy to forget. Your desk may be messy, but at least you can see at a glance what needs to get done.
It takes time to organize. Some experts have suggested that the time it takes you to organize your desk can be more productively spent doing your job-and that organization doesn't save you a large amount of time to begin with. Disorganized people often claim that they know where everything is, and this is often true-and if you're well organized but the paper you need is across the office in your filing cabinet, it may take you just as long to get your hands on it as it would if it were under a pile on your desk.
Consider buying an in-out tray. This will make it easier for you to deal with paper work. This is particularly true if you have a L-shaped computer desk. You have the monitor on one side plus a mouse and keyboard nearby. Using an in-out tray will keep the papers away from your computer making it easier for you to move around and keep paper and computer work separate. Having this kind of tray will also make it easy for you to organize and prioritize paper work. Should co-workers need to send you stacks of paper, they will have an area to put it and an area to pick up finished work.
