Visiting a client the other day, I remarked upon the fact that his desk was perhaps one of the untidiest I had seen for many years – I am sure you will agree. A day later he sent me a photograph of his work in progress. And then after a further day… Is this exercise going to improve his performance in business? Absolutely! Will the action he has taken be an example of leadership to the rest of the team? Sure thing. Do I believe that this de-cluttering will lift his self-esteem? I’m convinced of it. Sometimes, getting yourself “tidy” is the first step in a journey of a thousand miles. Are you “tidy” – in your office, in your business, in your life?
