I teach the bookbinding workshops at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. We are coming up on the new term and I am reminded of something I always tell my students that also applies to my own work habits in my office. “Make sure your work area is clean before you get started on a project.” As an artist, my office can turn into quite a hazard zone, with many projects going on at once. The best thing for me to do when I have so much work “on the table” that I feel a bit overwhelmed is to spend an hour cleaning up my workspace. The cleaner the better. I truly helps me concentrate on what I need to get done. Those of you feng shuiers will agree 100% that you are more productive when you are working in a clean and organized environment. Even my really whacked out artist friends agree, and I know some pretty “get down and dirty” artists. So take some time and clean up. The time spent getting things picked up and put away will most definitely make a larger impact on your work flow.
