If you dread spending time at your desk or office, it may not be the work – but the environment – you resent. A clear, clean, organized desk space will encourage you to get quality work done efficiently and without distraction.

  • Clean up. Throw away old memos and outdated messages. Go through everything in your area and get rid of everything that you no longer need. Customers and co-workers expect a smooth professional experience when they visit your workspace.
  • Having a cluttered desk or work area adds to your stress level. When you organize your space you will work more efficiently with the items, files and tools that you use most often within easy reach. You will also be able to access the information you need more quickly which will make you appear more efficient and more professional.
