Noise, distractions, disorganisation and clutter. They are part of the every single day. If you’re of those people who thrive in chaos, I applaud you. In this truly chaotic world we live in today you are well positioned to excel. If however you’re like me, you find noise, clutter and disorganisation truly distracting and a detriment to your productivity. Trying to work on a single task when there are conversations happening around you, interruptions about completely obscure questions, feeling disorganised because of the environment you’re working in, or not knowing what’s truly important and deserves your attention right now can lead to a significant amount of time your time being wasted.
