Do you spend endless amounts of time sifting through papers, looking for client folders or even trying to find a pen? Does your messy desk need a decluttering makeover?
We’ve all been there. And an important lesson I’ve learned is that when you spend a few minutes every day organizing your desk, it will not only save you hours in the long run, but it can reduce stress, limit distractions and even improve your credibility with your boss.
The first thing to do is approach the organization process with a plan. Much like cleaning out your closet or your garage, think about the things you use often in your workspace and make those the most accessible.
Whether you’re a packrat, a mild hoarder or just somewhat disorganized, these tips can help you arrange your desk for optimal productivity no matter your stage of chaos.
Purging things and organizing your desk can give you a new perspective and a sense of accomplishment.
And instead of thinking about decluttering as a one-time event, spend a few minutes on organization at the beginning or end of your day. This will create good habits that will decrease stress, save you time and energy and even help you be more productive.
