I’ve been trying to do one thing in my business and work life recently that I think has really, really helped my productivity.
It all centers around my desk.
Each night, before I go to bed or when I leave my desk for the night, I clean up.
I stack up my client work in one pile.
I stack my calendar and to-do list in another pile.
I take the dishes upstairs.
I put away anything else.
I even close all of the windows AND Outlook on my desktop.
Then, when I sit down in front of the computer in the morning, I have a space for work and productivity already created. Having a spot for everything is HUGE.
I also keep important, but not “have to be soon” task items on my keyboard drawer.
It’s worked for me, maybe it can work for you!
