Chaos & Confusion - My Desk..

As I was glancing through arts journal I couldn't help noticing a title:
'The Smarter You Are. The Messier Your Desk Is?'
I had to read on.
Apparently, in a book just published, 'A Perfect Mess: The Hidden Benefits of Disorder' by Eric Abrahamson & David H Freedman, they say:

"Office messiness tends to increase sharply with increasing education, increasing salary, and increasing experience."

What a relief. There I was thinking I was a poor housekeeper when actually I'm a genius..(if you could see my desk you would understand, in fact you can't see it for papers, contracts, blah blah blah..)
As for Robin, he's just as bad, even though he now has an excellent filing system, that doesn't account for all pieces of music currently being worked on.
At least I can ignore the mess now in a guilt free manner.
As they said, 'a clear desk signifies an empty mind'...

Einstein Is supposed to have remarked: If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, what does an empty desk mean?

...exactly, it's something to do with mass = paperwork, energy = wasted time cleaning, multiplied by the square of the flickering light in my office, or is it E = mc2...
Whatever, it's all relative...
Thanks for your comment.
