Go Big or Go Bust: Day 186 (On procrastination, Freud, Patsy Cline and a used two drawer file cabinet)

Much as I want to get this highlights reel finished, there's one more way in which I could reasonably procrastinate. 

Pegeen told me that for maximum effectiveness your desk should be 80% free of clutter.  Since learning this, I've been aware of how much easier everything is with a cleared-off desk.  So any logical person might wonder: "What effect could a concentration of chaos in the corner of my office have on my life and work?"

The way I see it  A) you spend a great deal of energy pretending it doesn't bother you  B) you quote Freud to yourself and everyone who'll listen: “There’s denial, and then there’s insanity.”  or C) you go to the local used-office equipment store and score a barely scratched file cabinet for a very good price and proceed, with a Bridget Jones aura of superiority, to  P-R-O-C-R-A-S-T-I-N-A-T-E.

If Patsy Cline were still around, she'd write me that for my theme song. 

(Special thanks to Jacqueline Cioffa for the Freud quote which I discovered in her piece on feminine collective.)

 A chipmunk got loose in here a few days ago.  In other words, anything could happen if I don't immediately take control of this situation.

 I feel your shiver of horror.

 Victorious, on my way to establish order.
