Today’s tip will increase your productivity and peace of mind.
At the end of every work day, save 5 to 10 minutes to clean off your desk!
How simple is that? Yet it REALLY works.
- never missing a late fee – because the bills aren’t lost in a stack of paperwork
- knowing what you are working on and WHERE it is
- being more productive since you aren’t wasting time SEARCHING for things
- being able to start each day off feeling calm and confident
By making that end of the day “clear up the desk” a normal part of your routine, you can get all that for FREE! It just takes discipline and a little time each day.
Don’t despair if your desk is so out of control that you can’t see the bottom right now. You can get there. Give yourself time and patience and devote 15 minutes a day to cleaning it up until it looks great. THEN, maintain with that end of the day routine.
What’s stopping you? January is a perfect time to start a new clean desk ritual, so give it a try TODAY!
