No matter the size or scope of organizing in your office, these four steps will help you gain control of the clutter, reduce stress, and free up time. Don’t add to your stress by thinking you must complete these steps all in one day. In fact, you will fine tune your initial actions as time goes by and you get a better view of your needs.
Using these four easy steps, you can work your way to a clutter free, organized and functional office.
If you are new to the position in the office, or have trouble remembering certain things, it can also be a good idea to use a slot to hold common reference material (such as cost code numbers, phone lists, etc.)
If there are any remaining slots, you could designate them for incoming or outgoing correspondence, misc. papers that you don’t have time to address immediately, or other materials that you frequently access during the week that need to be off of your desk surface, but readily available. This will help you stay on the organizing streak.
Using these four easy steps, you can work your way to a clutter free, organized and functional office. You will start to see and feel immediate benefits, such as less stress, more time, and a clear mind.
