A former colleague and friend of mine always dubbed Thursdays as “CYFDD” as part of a weekly habit. What is CYFDD you might ask? CYFDD stands for Clean Your Fucking Desk Day.

I am pretty minimal when it comes to my desk so it has never occurred to me to set a day of the week to tidy it up, but during our time working with one another I rolled it into my weekly schedule and continue to do so each and everything Thursday, though most of the times it’s not really needed.

Perhaps scheduling a CYFDD on your calendar might be a good thing to help keep your desk tidy if you have a problem with a messy desk or are new to working from home and find that things are piling up.
