Let’s face it. Everyone wants to live in a clean, tidy and well-organized home. But what about an office we work in. It’s very important to have a clean and stylish work space. Studies show that we actually spend more time in our workplaces than we do in our own homes. That’s why it’s necessary to keep everything in order, whether it’s your home or office. No one wants to walk into a mess. Spend at least 5 minutes at the end of the working day putting things away and re-arrange your desk so that when you walk in the next morning, your place is ready for you to start working.
Organize paper files on your desk, toss what can be tossed, file what can be filed. Don’t be afraid to deal with all that stuff. You will notice a big difference in the way you feel while you work if you make some changes to your messy workspace.
Your workplace should inspire you. It should be neat and comfortable. You can decorate your work place, but don’t add too many personal items. Every item on your desk top should be useful for you. Of course, you can place a framed photo of your family or loved one, but don’t forget that it’s your work place and you should concentrate on your work. Still, it depends on the rules of the company you work for.
A messy desk can give a very bad first impression. Clear your main work area of anything you don’t use on a daily basis. Prioritize the things that need immediate attention from the ones that can wait. Remove any knick knacks or distracting items from your desk. Place that items on top of a bookcase or filing cabinet. Toss all non practical items and limit the desk ones (pens, paper pads, staples, highlighters, etc.). Make every item functional. Nowadays there is a lot of stylish office supplies that can provide a stylish personal effect while providing function. Keep a clutter-free environment while adding your own personal style.
