If you feel as if a bomb went on in your workspace you may need to organize it. Having a more organized workplace can increase your ability to get stuff done. Making sure you have a specific place for each item on your desk, along with keeping you papers neat can make a huge difference.
- Did you know that January 12, 2017 was national Clean Off Your Desk day? No? You’re not the only one who missed the official day of observance, but you can still start the year off with a clean workspace.
- A clean desk is an enjoyable desk to work at. Use “Clean Off Your Desk” day as an excuse to take everything off your desk and then wipe it clean, Lee says.
- Invest in however many folders you need to organize any and all of the loose papers cluttering up the surface of your desk, Lee says. “If it isn’t important enough to put in a folder, throw it away.
“Anything that you don’t use on a daily basis can be stored in a drawer or supply cabinet.”
