Your desk isn’t the only thing that’s likely to be cluttered! Go through your inbox.  Delete old emails that are irrelevant. Unsubscribe to that email list you got put on after ordering that one thing that one time. You can even designate folders for certain emails, so now you no longer have to scroll through endless email when you’re looking for a memo about the sales meeting. Peace of mind, in regards to your emails, is attainable if you make the effort.
