shower conceived these too!
Being "organised" hasn't been my strongest point. "Organised" in quotes because, it just dawned on me that this act could actually be very personal, and relative. "Organised" in one's view could be completely disorganised in someone else's. Seeing one of my profs' office in "complete mess" all the time, I used to think at least someone is worse than myself when it came to being "organised". I would have to push things around (on the floor and on the chairs and desks) to create a space for myself whenever I had meeting. But, it always startled me when my prof found everything he wanted to quicker than one would from a perfectly labelled (organised) filing system, or say a library. I would just sit there in awe of his memory. Remember playing a card game, where you have to flip two similar cards based on your memory of seeing them just once? Its like that. Everything in that chaos were in their "space" and in my profs' memory of that space. Now, once a year my prof does "organise" his office (its a ritual that it seems has to be performed!), and after this "organisation" I find him lost in his own office for a few days (not being able to find the right document, and having to spend more time on everything because of that!) until his office came back to it normal chaotic self. I think his office is an "organised" chaos, just like morning rush hours in any of the metros in big cities. Its a chaos but things still move quite smoothly (because everybody know their "spaces").
