For most people, the second Monday of every January is just another day on the calendar, but it might be more important than you think!
January 8th is National Clean Your Desk Day, and many believe that a tidy desk is vital for a fulfilling and productive work life. In fact, research shows that professionals with clean, organized desks stay more focused and do not get frustrated as quickly as those with cluttered desks.
It can be overwhelming when sorting through a year’s worth of work, so here are some suggestions when cleaning your desk:
- Throw away old paperwork and documents
- Shred paperwork with sensitive information
- Organize drawers and files (even PC desktop)
- Give away duplicate office supplies
With a clean, organized workspace, you will be ready to take on whatever is thrown your way!
