One of the things that makes it so difficult for us to stay organized is the need to fill empty spaces. I’m not entirely sure [...]
As an Organizer, I find the term "negative space" misleading. In design, negative space is the white area that falls between the dark "positive spaces." Perhaps the most familiar example of negative space can be seen in the FedEx logo. As many of you have noticed by now, there is an arrow in the white space between the "e" and the "x." That forward pointing arrow is negative space, but since it is such a perfectly POSITIVE symbol for FedEx it is hardly negative, in the bad sense. The same holds true for staying organized.
