What Does My Desk Say about Me?
You Are a Whirlwind Woman
You're an impulsive, creative person who tackles everything with hands-on enthusiasm -- whether it's your latest project at work or whipping up dinner on the spur of the moment. Your desk demonstrates that energy, which is why sometimes it looks like a tornado hit it. It may not exactly be chaos, but your filing "system" probably has a creative flair (just like your personality).
You pride yourself on your individuality and a stimulating environment is important to you. That may mean a work space that's attractively decorated or simply one that's in the middle of the action. You enjoy interacting with others throughout the day, even if you work from home and are happy to chat with colleagues or kids when they are around. Your social nature and high energy can be a magnet for others. Just make sure you don't let these interactions dominate your day.
Since your work space reflects your creative side, it may already be bringing you good things in life. If you keep a plant, no doubt it's healthy, and as a result it's creating good energy according to the principles of feng shui, the Chinese discipline that teaches us how to attract and enhance our life energy (called chi) according to how our living spaces are arranged. Pleasant lighting is indicative of your aesthetic nature, and it increases focus and clarity. And if you don't already use vibrant tones such as red, purple and blue, consider adding them to increase your chances of financial prosperity.
Keep in mind as well that sometimes your tendency to indulge your creative side can hamper you in other ways. Your work space may practically take on a life of its own, and the clutter can be "a visual, physical and psychological deterrent to true productivity," says professional organizer Judith A. Kirk of Organizing Resources. Clearing up your desk from time to time will not only give you a greater sense of control over your projects, it will also help the chi of your area. Leaving space free allows room for promotions and other opportunities to enter your business life.
