It’s all too easy to fall victim to the relentless cycle of the work day. Once you work your way into a groove, it can become very difficult to find your way out of it! Take this month as an opportunity to make a change by starting with something that can go a long way: cleaning your office.
Clean Desk Clean Mind
Working in a clean and well organized environment can help boost your motivation and productivity. Often times our workspace can be a reflection of our mind. A desk covered with clutter and scattered documents makes it difficult to locate critical items when you need them. Investing time into cleaning up and creating an organized system is sure to pay off in the long run.
Have a System
One of the most effective ways to keep a space organized is to assign every item a “home”. Make use of desk drawers to file away things like writing utensils, documents, and other office supplies. Common items that you make use of on a daily basis should be kept easily within reach, while other more long term objects could be stored elsewhere. As you go through the process of assigning everything a home, you might discover clutter that you previously thought were important. This is a perfect opportunity to get rid of unnecessary office clutter and identify what you truly need to keep.
Use a Temporary Holding Space
If you feel that taking the time to put everything away properly just takes up too much time, consider designating a drawer as a temporary holding space. Here, you can quickly store things if you need to suddenly change gears and work on something else. However, you’ll want to ensure that you empty out the holding space when you find some time later, otherwise it no longer serves its temporary purpose!
Maintaining is Just as Important as Cleaning
Now that you’ve taken the time to clean your space, don’t let it fall victim to the jaws of entropy again! Take small moments of time out of your day to upkeep your organization. This will prevent the need for another major cleaning or overhaul.
A clean workspace can help elevate you into that coveted mindset where you feel energized and inspired. Is your office in need of a major cleaning that simple organizing can’t resolve?
