Could your desk be mistaken for a Post-It note factory? Those sticky notes are convenient for jotting down quick notes, but there should be a method to the madness. A Pendaflex survey of top administrative assistants and CEOs at Fortune 500 companies found that a cluttered workspace sends a negative message to your boss. Every so often, make a list of all the information you've written on sticky notes, creating a longer master list. Also, this list can house questions for your boss, so you can get all your questions answered at once rather than bothering the boss every half hour.
