Five Simple Tips to Get Organized Today!
Take time to declutter this summer...
Writing can certainly consume the better part of your day... Especially when you consider all the other responsibilities most of us take on each day.
Sometimes you can overlook the benefits of cleaning up your work area. If you're like me, you may put off rather mundane tasks like - reading and actually responding to email messages, sorting through snail mail, paying bills, going through files etc...
Although these tasks are definitely time-consuming and usually uninspiring, you may be surprised how much better you'll feel if you clean house!
Yes - you have to be determined to do it and you absolutely must set your mind into that "mode." But it is possible to "declutter" your workspace and start anew!
Start anywhere you choose and then set aside a few hours to totally complete one clean-up task.
Go through every single one of your email messages
Review your files
Gather all of your notes
Read your snail mail
Clean up your desk
Get rid of every little thing you do NOT need that is occupying precious space on your desktop. Rearrange the essential desktop items - like:
Your printer and/or fax machine
Necessary office supplies (pens, paper, stickynotes, calendar etc...)
Regardless of how much time these boring tasks require, you can rest assured that the resulting feeling of freedom and lack of "clutter" will be a welcome change.
