For me, clutter is the main cause of unproductiveness. It generates distractions, makes you feel uncomfortable and in my case, the idea that I eventually have to organize my workspace stresses me out.

Erin Doland, author for the blog and book Unclutterer, argues that the problem isn’t cleaning or organizing often, but that we don’t have processes to organize our lives and spaces. In this article, Erin proposes the powerful idea of investing a little time in creating processes to stop accumulating useless things and leaving the endless clean-clutter cycle.
