Stuck at work and far away from your pantry, closet, and grody bathroom? Take a few minutes and unfuck your emails. Delete what needs deleting, make some logical folders, and get that horrifying “unread” number under control.
Your work doesn’t involve email? (Hey, mine doesn’t. I don’t even have Internet access at work!) Take five minutes and unfuck your immediate workspace. Put stuff back where it belongs, deal with the sea of Post-its, and (this is my favorite) do a quick wipe or dust of your workspace surface. It’ll be gross, I bet. Totally worth it.
