    My Desk is a MESS! What's on your desk?

    Since this is work, I have a few thumb drives, books, tools, always food, some papers and random business cards - typical stuff. But then the project stuff started getting crazy:
    Automotive LED lighting (something we don't even make!)
    Silicone electrical seals (and plastic connector bodies)
    5 versions of 1 aerospace plastic part (they've been using these for 2 years and NOW they want them re-designed)
    Exploded braid-reinforced hose section
    Leak tester prototype
    Transmission seal housing
    Bullet proof body armor plate (we don't make that either!)
    Dry ice blasting nozzle (broken - goes with the hose section above)
    14" drill bit
    Hydraulic seals
    Ignition relay from a 2001 TransAm
    golf pencil

    ...but my stapler is put away!

    And I just know that if I throw something out, someone will ask about it the very next day.

    Just my computer, phone, wallet, keys, and a water bottle at the moment. I just finished moving, so all my less-useful crap is packed up in boxes somewhere.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    I just cleaned my desk the other day. A notepad, Post-it pad, couple pens and a pencil, set of ear muffs and safety glasses, file organizer, desk phone, computer speakers, 2 monitors, keyboard, and mouse.

    Cleaned my work desk just yesterday morning. We had a new customer coming through, so I had to clean my whole Engineering department. My home desk, on the other hand---- notice the dark and flashless picture of my desk on my monitor in my picture of my desk, this one is fresh.

    Maybe not "neat", but to my eye it is very well-organized.

    I normally have to prep daily meetings, ongoing investigations, interviews, budget preps and QI projects simultaneously on the go so my space looks messy to me. But compared to other workspaces ... I am told by my colleagues that my desk/office is exceptionally neat and orderly.

    I've got various in process piles, but best of all I printed out some trail maps for an area I have not ridden before from the trail wiki. Those pages are face down on my desk when I'm not staring at them trying to commit the trail details to memory.

    Sv: My Desk is a MESS! What's on your desk?

    My desk has monitor, speakers, keyb + 2d and 3d mouse, a pile of ISO-standards and a few piles of un-approved drawings. And some sketches of an fs AM frame :-)

    I don't have a choice but to keep it fairly neat, I have no room for extra crap.
