To continue our series on tips for preventing “messy desk” syndrome, I’d like to encourage you to resist the urge to look at the desk “next door.” Instead, find systems that will work “with” you – and not sabotage your efforts.
- Don’t compare your space to someone else’s. Discover your unique organizational style and employ systems which maximize your strengths.
- Some people are “filers” and others are “pilers.” – and one style is not better than the other. Instead, use organizational products to help you embrace your style.
- Set up folders in your email program so you can easily file correspondence you’d like to keep.
- Resist the urge to keep a hard copy of information you can find on the internet.
