Organizing Your Office
The 5 reasons your office may be disorganized.
Is this you?
- I waste most of my day looking for things.
- I waste most of my day organizing/tidying my desk.
- I waste most of my time rearranging and moving things around.
- I pile everything in and around my desk, grab what I need, and work at the kitchen table instead.
- My office is boring, not motivating, and too cluttered.
If you can relate to one or more of the items above, then chances are you need an office face lift/ transformation.
Organizing isn’t just grabbing what you own and placing it in a neat pile(s). Organizing requires strategic planning so that you can easily retrieve what you’re looking for as well as maintain it effortlessly.
Pay attention to the following:
1. Your habits
- Do you drop stuff and leave it?
- Do you put things back where they belong?
- Do you hoard paper?
- Do you buy more than you need?
2. The work you do
- Are you in the office every day or are you in and out?
- Is everything electronic or do you also use paper files?
- Do you have a set schedule or routine?
- Do you share the space with someone else?
3. Your personality
- Do you prefer to have things left out so you remember you have it? (out of sight of mind)
- Does clutter bother you? Can you work in chaos?
4. Your environment
- Do you feel motivated in your space and inspired to work?
- What is the temperature like in your space?
- How is your decor? Desk and chair? Layout of the room?
All of these are important when deciding to and trying to organize your space.
Why? Because organizing takes a long time and you want to do it right the first time! Also, this is your space. You want a space that you absolutely love or else you’re not going to want to be in it. Simple!
Think of organizing like a personal trainer for your space/life. It’s not a cookie-cutter-one-shoe-fits-all type of thing- it’s very custom to the individual.
