13 Things Your Desk Says About You

For Better or Worse, the Condition of Your Workspace Reflects on You

If You Keep Office Plants/Pets, Keep Them Healthy

Want a verdant desktop terrarium or lively fishbowl? Be ready to commit.

Optimally, your desk will project professional growth and accomplishment. Healthy greenery or happy active fish can send a positive aesthetic message, but dusty and withering plants and scummy fish tanks with wide-eyed floaters on the surface are visible failures. These desktop squatters have no right to be in your professional workspace.

Be realistic about what you can maintain, and maintain it well.
