The Jean Piaget Clutter Quote

Sunday, September 17, 2006
This is the quote I promised to post for those of you who were at my presentation in Ottawa this morning -- the Jean Piaget Clutter Quote.

"As you know, Bergson pointed out that there is no such thing as disorder but rather two sorts of order, geometric and living. Mine is clearly living. The folders I need are within reach, in the order of frequency with which I use them. True, it gets tricky to locate a folder in the lower levels. But if you have to find it, you look for it. That takes less time than putting them away every day."
- Conversations with Jean Piaget (1980) by Jean Claude Bringuier

So: If clutter was good enough for one of the great thinkers of the previous century (a fellow Einstein once described as a genius), isn't it time you got with the clutter program?
