Pete, a sales guy here at work, has an immaculate desk.
The solid wood workspace has an empty â€˜inâ€™ box and one or two short piles of papers neatly stacked; each topped with a single smooth stone.
mike d: Pete. how do you keep your desk so clean?
Pete: Oh, I have this box here. ::pulls out a box the size of a small refrigerator from under his desk:: When I get paper I just throw it in here. An inch of paper is equivalent to about a week. ::reaches in and pulls out thick stack of completely unorganized paper::
See? Three weeks.
