It’s difficult to feel like you’ve got it all together when your workspace is a mess. Organizing is about having a system you like and trust, along with a place that makes you feel good, where you can easily find what you’re looking for.
To kick off Organize U—here are 3 tips to make your working environment more productive:
- Keep everything you need at point of use. Files, pens, scissors—whatever you need—should be within easy reach. The more you have to get up to get things, the more time you waste. (And the more distracted you get!)
- Keep your hard copy and computer files organized in the same way. Use the same naming conventions for both. Organizing is about retrieval, so you want to keep your system simple and easy to use.
- Be as comfortable as possible in your space: Add personal touches that make you enjoy your workspace more. Remember: A happy you is a confident and productive you!
