Why You Should Organise Your Desk According To Science
Urban Traveller & Co. celebrates the new collaboration between Orbitkey and KonMari by Marie Kondo with the new KonMari Orbitkey Nest.
“I have a system” just won’t cut it anymore.
We can’t talk about the importance of organisation without mentioning Marie Kondo. The KonMari Method of organising by taking your personal effects, assessing their current value by evaluating whether they still “spark joy,” and on that basis, deciding whether these effects are to be kept or to be thrown away, played a crucial part in the resurgence of minimalism today; whether as a lifestyle, a fashion choice, or design principle. Marie Kondo has rephrased and recontextualised the core philosophy of minimalism in this one key phrase: “Does it still spark joy?”
Forming the minimalist habit by asking yourself whether something might continue to spark joy: Do I use it? Do I need it? Do I love it? If undecided, you set it aside for later, effectively blanketing yourself from the daunting possibility of using pure impulse as a basis for throwing out more than you actually should. The ultimate goal is to keep things that have both meaning and purpose.
This is also easily applicable to your office space, your work desk. If however you might still be unconvinced by the KonMari Method, here are two reasons why you should organise your desk, as backed by science.
The KonMari Method is the perfect first step to building the habit and incorporating it into your workspace, and getting started is easier than ever with the new Konmari Orbitkey Nest, coming soon to Urban Traveller & Co..
