quickly organize your office

Did you know that 60% of people are visual (I am too!) so clutter and "stuff" strewn all over the place will drive a lot of people nuts! Not only will a cluttered and disorganized space dive you nuts, it will also make it very difficult to be productive.

So, if you would like to transform your office space into an uncluttered, super-productive space, here is how you can do it!

1. Back up your files:

Do NOT open your email before you start or you'll get sidetracked! DO put a recurring reminder in Outlook to do this on a monthly basis, or more frequently than that.

Now, while your computer is backing up...

2. Clean off your desk:

Put all items belonging in another room in the plastic basket. Don't go to the actual room to put away - you don't want to get sidetracked!

Throw any trash and put all your little notes inside a single notebook (you do have ONE desk notebook, don't you?) and set it to one side.

If you don't use the item on a DAILY basis, it shouldn't be on your desk. By the same token, if you use something every day, make a place for it within arm's reach.

3. Sort out the paper:

Take out the desk notebook with all the little notes. Write down all those bits and pieces - your Internet provider's helpline, website addresses, etc.

Throw away all the junk mail and paper you don't need and put all the filing in ONE pile - you can do this in front of the TV later!

Now doesn't that feel better? A neat and organized office!
