Mark Shead on Paper vs. Importance:
I have noticed the most important people have a very clear desk. This also tends to be the case for people with much less important jobs. To illustrate, I’ve created a graph.
Assuming for the sake of argument this is true, I am on the verge of transforming myself from a person of medium importance to a person of no importance.
Of course, I haven't gotten to the floor piles yet, so maybe not.
I wonder if Al Gore has floor piles?
