Jason Fried from 37signals proposed a productivity tip yesterday: Throw everything on your desk in a box (and just take out what you really really need, and throw out the remaining items in the box after 30 days).

But how would eliminating all unused clutter affect the boredom even the most challenging job yields every once in a while? Without useless stuff or toys to play with we would be devastated!

So my tip is to keep everything (well seperated and containerized!). Once boredom strikes you can stimulate your creativity or spike your energy level by creating small works of art reusing the things you would have tossed otherwise.
