I just got my studio cleaned up for the first time in two years. Now instead of having piles of stuff strewn all over my floor, I have piles of stuff strewn all over my floor in orderly fashion.
I work on several jobs at a time and it would be easy for one of them to get lost in the shuffle. That is why I keep all current “in progress” jobs on my floor. This is a nuisance to me because I have to keep stepping over them, but it keeps me constantly thinking, “Man, I gotta get that job done and get it off my floor”.
Jobs are not the only thing I keep on my floor, though. If it’s important or something I have to remember, it is also on my floor. I leave the really, really important things in the doorway so that I have to step over them when I leave my room.
Oddly enough, my newly cleaned up studio looks pretty much exactly like my old messed up studio did.
