In business, it’s all about the details. In fact, as most successful business people know, it’s the little details that, if ignored, can bring down even huge corporations.
Many savvy business owners are taking this to heart and triumphing over a messy unproductive environment by focusing on small organizational details.
Organizing is simply maintaining a system for working efficiently. Implementing easy ideas that improve organization is the newest frontier in workplace productivity.
How to start? If you want to accomplish more, take a look at your desk. The little saboteurs are right there in plain sight.
According to consultants specializing in organizing messy workplaces, you need to consider these desktop distractions and make changes.
One idea that seems to have currency today is the elimination of desk clocks and their computer equivalents on your taskbar.
Constant clock-watching is a distraction and may contribute to feeling overwhelmed and reducing your productivity.
Avoid missing appointments by setting alarms on your computer or smartphone.
Next, remove piles of papers from your desk. They only remind you of all the work you still have to tackle. Multitasking with numerous batches of files is rapidly falling from favor. So arrange a list of tasks to complete today, conduct one project at a time and hide those piles of To-Dos somewhere where you can’t see them.
If you want to stay focused on the important projects, re-organize your workspace. It will help you concentrate on the details so they don’t get lost among the piles of paper.
