Office Organization Tips: If your office space is littered with documents, stationery and junk, your motivation to work is probably less than good. Improving your office environment makes it easier and more desirable to work. You can easily improve the efficiency of your work day after employing a few strategies…
Easy ways to organize your office:
- Be Picky: Are you really using all three notepads on your desk? Do you need five pictures of your pet? Choose wisely what warrants your valuable work space so that you’re not on sensory overload while trying to work. Recycle, donate or trash unnecessary items. Keep only items that are regularly used.
- Label, label, label: Offices are holding pens for all kinds of documents. Make life easier by creating specific storage places for each type of office document such as invoices, security information and rather than making piles on your desk and floors.
- Conceal Wires and Cords: Wiring and cords sticking out from your desk is not only unsightly, it’s also a safety and security risk if someone trips and potentially damages devices. Easily group your cords together with plastic or Velcro ties from a home-improvement store.
- Stick to a List: Start each day adhering to a work plan that lists all mandatory tasks in priority order. You can make this list the night before or first thing in the morning. Only include tasks that are vital to the day and put off miscellaneous tasks that only make you procrastinate.
