There are many ways to increase your productivity; one of those ways is to keep a workspace that is clean and organized. There are many ways to accomplish a clean and organized desk, from minimizing the amount of trash (by increasing ease of access to a trashcan), to designating a physical space where all paper documents should reside. When you minimize the clutter and keep items on your desk that are relevant to your immediate tasks, you will increase your productivity.
- To keep your desk organized and productive, have a trash can handy and never use the top of your desk as a trash way station.
- Have an actual inbox, so you can move through things quickly, better yet scan available items.
- Keep a practice of thoroughly cleaning your desk before you go away from it for the day.
“And if you don’t have space to work, you won’t be productive.”
