Some Office Spring Cleaning Tips

It is a beautiful Spring Day and I have opened up the windows and am looking at clearing out the clutter that seems to have appeared while I was hibernating. If you want to join me, I am offering a few tips to support your preparation.

Your first task is to clear off your desk.

  • Get rid of the things you don’t use or don’t like.
  • File away those papers that need to be retained.
  • Shred or recycle those papers that are no longer needed.
  • If dealing with paper feels daunting, try doing it in 15-minute increments.
  • Only have items you love or use daily on your desk.
Next, you are going to get set up from a technology perspective.
  • Set up a email filters for those newsletters you want to keep getting. Unsubscribe from those that aren’t serving you any more.
  • Organize your passwords.
  • Decide on a calendaring system.
  • Clean out your email inbox and voice mail messages.
Lastly, you are going to remove some distractions. I don’t know if you are like me, but I can assure you that when I was in university, the bathroom was always sparkling just before a big exam.
  • Clean out your refrigerator, pantry, and closets.
  • Do those minor home improvement items you’ve been meaning to get to (fix leaky faucet, hang pictures).

With a clear an organized space – and without the distractions of the minor repairs sucking up your energy – you are on a good path to getting focused and getting things done.

To your business success!
