National Clean Off Your Desk Day!

Start by identifying the piles on your desk. What are they? What action needs to be taken next. If you know where you are headed, it’s easier to get there.

Maybe some of the stuff needs to go to someone else. This is an easy task. Gather everything that belongs to someone else for a single delivery trip later.

There will probably be a lot of stuff that just needs to be thrown out. Great, do it!

If you only have time to do these 3 steps that’s fine. It will make a big difference. But it you have more time, identify what you don’t need out anymore and make a “pile to file”. What you should have left on your desk is stuff you are working on. Fabulous! It’s time to start your business day with a little less clutter. Happy Holiday!
