Your office desk is a place you spend a great deal of your day. Usually, you get busy, projects come and go and your desk suffers. This post will explain how to keep your office desk in tip-top condition.
The feeling a clean desk gives you is invigorating and can sometimes inspire you. The desk is clean, you are focused, and work is getting done! This typically lasts a couple of days and a couple of big projects later the clean desk is back to its original disorganized state. Some people are fortunate and have larger work surfaces – looming desks that orders attention when you enter your office. Other people reading this post can only wish to have such a spacious environment while working. It’s not important the amount of desk surface space you have, here are a couple of guidelines to help keep your desk clean.
Picture your desk as first-rate real estate. Whatever sits on it needs to be worthy of take up its space. Only the things you use every day should sit here.
Keep office supplies close by. Drawers and pencil organizers are appropriate ways to make sure often-used items are within reach.
Keep things in handy. Resources, files, and other items you use daily should be within an arm’s reach. If you keep a phone book on your desk but use online directories, then you should ditch the book.
Try considering “up”. By putting your computer monitor on a monitor stand, you not only raise it to a correct ergonomic level, but it will provide you with more clean desk surface space. If you can, install shelves above your desk, giving you an area where you can keep binders and other resources within reach.
Create an organization system. Organize your present projects by placing them in project binders, or other types of manila folders. Take the time to label each file and store them upright in a sorter. This is an easy way to keep clear of piles of files and allows you to visually see every project. Now you have a system that will help maintain your desk and keep it clean.
Use a stackable In/Out tray. Papers and unopened mail that comes into your office needs a temporary home until you decide what to do with them. Make sure that the bottom tray acts as an In-Box, thus limiting just how much stuff can gather before you must get to them. This helps you keep your desk clean and stay on top of projects that needs your attention.
Get rid of distractions. Between people coming into your office, getting phone calls, emails coming in at a consistent pace and keeping up with your appointments and business meetings, it’s no wonder it’s such a laborious endeavor to maintain a clean desk. To clarify, get rid of additional personal items, including things that need to go back to your home. You should also give attention to the space underneath your desk as it’s often an easy hiding place for miscellaneous time. These distractions will only stop you from your goal of keeping a clean desk.
