The NYT ran a piece last week on the virtues of messiness, claiming that "messy desks are the vivid signatures of people with creative, limber minds." The article even states that "the most valuable dividend of living with mess may be time." Here at Lifehacker, we'd argue that anyone really organized knows that your system is broken if it takes that much time at all.
Since a lot of Lifehacker readers are big into the cult of Getting Things Done, and even those who aren't pride themselves on their organization skills, I'm curious to hear what you all have to say about this. Give us your thoughts - for and against mess - in the comments.
