If you are a business worker this can be true as well, but the stereotype of the student that cares more about logging a few more hours into their internet video games than into their homework is a pretty common one. They do this activity at their desk while under the light of a desk lamp. It can be a desolate environment but if they hope to get their design for the project done in time then they will need to conquer their irresponsibility. These are all important dream symbols that occur to students and businessmen all the time.
Dreaming of a desk usually means that it is time to stop putting things off. A desk means work, and dreaming of work means that there is still work for you to do. Stop putting off the work on your table, when you have so much to do that the idea of it is penetrating your subconscious you need to get down to business and try to get some help on that front. Perhaps there is someone you know that can help you in this field. Alternatively if you are the type of person to always get things done on time and you never have to worry about due dates, seeing a desk in your dreams can mean the exact opposite thing. A dream is a place where your most fantastic desires and dreams come true. It is a place where you can always find refuge from the boredom of the average day and start to think about things that you imagine and the amazing and fantastic things that you can create with your mind. To have a dream about a simple desk when you are in a place that you can create anything suggests that you are too fixated on work and it is causing you to lose some zeal for life. You need to have the strength to just relax and let go of all of the boring things for one night. This dream is your territory and you need to make it so.
