Clean Off Your Desk Day

What does your desk look like right now? Everything neatly stored away in its proper place? Or piles of assorted paper everywhere? How about setting a New Year's resolution to get your office (home or work) in order? Think about all the problems that a MESSY desk causes you -- you are late paying bills, you can't find important papers when you need them, you look at the stacks and are filled with a sense of panic. Just taking a few minutes to CLEAN out the obsolete and set up some paper management SYSTEMS will carry you a long way toward a clean desk. Invest a few minutes creating a clean, efficient workspace for yourself.

Some Practical Organizing Tips...

Start by squaring off the piles on your desk. Then, one stack at a time, ask yourself what ACTION you need to take to resolve each piece of paper. Start creating categories like "to file" or "to read" or "to pay." These "action files" are the basis of your paper management system. Each new piece of paper you receive should be categorized, stored in the appropriate file, and then acted on -- it comes in, then it goes back out again.
Toss it out unless you have a good REASON to keep it. If a document requires an action, contains vital information, you can't easily get it again somewhere else if you need it, or you are legally required to hang onto it -- fine. Otherwise, it goes away.
Set aside time each DAY to clear up the accumulated paper. If it requires an action, finish taking action on it and be done with it. If it needs filed, file it. If it belongs to someone else, return it. If it's trash, toss it. Don't let paper linger indefinitely.
