37: Go Back to Your Junk Office

by Max Leibman

We all know what a trash can is for. It's for this podcast. 

Self-zing! But truly, the trash can is a model organizational tool because its function is clear. Piles and jumbles on the other hand. These things require decisions. No matter your relationship to your stuff, this week on Priority, the team tries to make sense of it all. Caitie gets stuck in trash can land, wondering how clear her organization would be if every space was so clearly defined. Max suggests there should be a place for everything (important), and everything (important) in its place. 

Does the way you organize your work reflect its value? Let the Priority team inspire you to find ways to make your workspace work for you.
