Office clean up can be one of the best things you do this week to feel more productive. What on earth am I talking about?
YOUR Business Success depends upon you being effective and efficient. One of the best ways to do this is to have a clean workspace.
Last week I heard Laura Gramann, a professional organizer of Pieces into Place state, “30% of our time is spent looking for documents“. This blew me away! This isn’t good news. Do the math. That’s more than one workday each week. Yikes!
Too often we start a project and get interrupted by one thing or another. If it’s sales closing, congrats! Don’t change a thing except do a little office clean up after such a great accomplishment.
If it’s not about closing sales, and you just keep churning from on thing to the next without any office clean up – small or large, it becomes one big mess! Now, I’m not talking about when you are in the middle of a project. I’m referencing the end of a project or the end of the day. I’ll even be so bold as to suggest: take a moment at the end of each week to do some office clean up. Then you can start next week with a clean slate.
Office clean up does take time. It’s time well spent. Considering if you don’t do this, you’re wasting 30% of your time looking for documents. This is extremely beneficial.
Here’s one more tip about and extended workspace. Read Throw Away YOUR Briefcase article from 2012.
Additionally, we know that mentally and emotionally you produce more when you work in a clean and organized environment. Note: Don’t feel guilty about calendaring some office clean up time. Research validates you will get a high ROI if you do.
