10 quick & easy office organizing ideas

Let's start your work week off right...let's get organized!

I know what you are thinking...'but I don't have time to get organized'. My answer to you is, "you don't have time NOT to get organized!" Once you start getting organized, you will be amazed at how much time you save. You will no longer have to spend 15 minutes searching your computer for 'that one file', you won't spend 10 minutes looking for your report, you won't spend 20 minutes searching through the 6 piles of information on your desk! It really adds up after a month and even a week.

I realize that you are all busy...I am too. So I'm going to revert back to my famous 15-minute speech! Set a timer for 15 minutes and see how much you can get done in that time. You will be amazed at the difference this will make if you do it for an entire week...and then an entire month.

For those of you who need a little help getting started, here are some ideas for when you have a spare 5 or 10 minutes:

1. Connect with an old client.
2. Delete some of your contacts, especially if you can't even remember who they are.
3. File or delete 10 emails.
4. Enter 5 business cards in your contacts.
5. Make a list of things to update on your website.
6. Go through your RSS feed reader and organize your blogs.
7. Go through your cell phone and delete old messages.
8. Plan your projects for the next month.
9. Go through the bookmarks on your computer and delete those you don't need.

10. Compress and crop some photos

My challenge to you
1. Print out the list.
2. Aim to do one of these tasks every day for a week...they will take you less than 15 minutes!

REMEMBER: "Small results, repeated consistently over time, produce huge results"
