Are you taking action on your goals?

If you feel you are not moving forward, a common reason is:

It is just too big!!!

 

What goal did you set?

Did you decide you are going to revamp your entire office?

 

Cutting the Clutter in your Office means:

  • Clear your desk – desktop AND drawers

    desk, papers, files, office organization,

    Messy Desk

  • Clear your file cabinet(s)  – how many cabinets do you have?
  • Clear your overhead bins
  • Clear the cubicle walls
  • Clear your bookcases
  • Clear your magazine holders.
  • Clear your computer

 

As you can see, there are too many areas to be uncluttered in an “entire” office.

It becomes overwhelming, and no one wants to tackle that much work, especially trying to do it all in one weekend.

 

So what can you do?

If you are looking to organize your office, you can see we have 8 areas.  You might think you could just divide that into 8 weeks and get it all done in 8 weeks.  Don’t fool yourself, they aren’t exactly even areas.

Depending on how many file cabinets you have, that will be the bulk of the work.

But you probably can’t finish a four- drawer file cabinet in one day unless you are already extremely organized and maintain it.

And if you work in a corporate or non-profit environment, you probably can’t take an entire day off to do even one file drawer.   It all depends on how much you have saved and how organized you are.

If you did do a major cleaning out at one time and have maintained that organization, you may not have too much to declutter.  However, if you have never really cleaned out your files, it will take quite awhile.

 

 

So how can you get it all done?

Break it down into smaller chunks, bite-sized pieces,

that you feel you could accomplish in one session, and do it that way.

Piece by piece by piece.
