Desktop hack for daily files clutter!

I’m a heavy desktop user – is that even a thing? – But during the day I drag and download all things that I’m working onto my desktop. Which turns into a gigantic clutter on which nothing can be found.

During a boring plane ride I came up with a small template to keep my desktop organized. Upper left corner are all the current files that I’m working on that day or week. Right upper corner are strategic documents and information that I want close at hand.

Lower left corner are all the things that I don’t really need anymore, but still have archive to their proper location. Right lower corner is all the stuff that I still have to read or study.

Anyway – it’s not rocket science and I’m no designer, but it really works for me! I can find all my files back super fast these days. Feel free to download the file and use it for yourself!
