Did you know today is a special day? That’s right, it’s Organize Your Home Office Day. So for all those times when you wanted to get your home office organized, but you didn’t, now would be the perfect time to get started.
People often say “I don’t have time to get organized” or “I’ll do it when I have time”. Unfortunately, until you make it happen there will never be a reminder on your calendar that says “today is the day you get organized”. So, use this as your official notice that today IS the day that you start getting organized. In honor of Organize Your Home Office Day let’s start with the home office. Now, I’m going to cut you a break because I know you may have a full day already scheduled so I’m going to declare it Organize Your Home Office Week. Here are some tips to help you get your home office organized this week.
- Set aside a reasonable amount of time to work on your home office each day. Do what works for you, this may be 15 minutes or two hours, but be consistent and commit to work on your home office every day this week.
- No interruptions. When you are trying to get organized do not: answer the phone, e-mail, text, or twitter. You may even need to break out a special toy or movie for the kids to play with while you are in your 30 minute organization zone.
- Set a timer. Timers work great to keep us focused on the task at hand. All you have to do is stay focused on organizing and when the timer goes off, you are done! If you find when the timer goes off you are on a roll, then keep going until you are at a good stopping point.
Getting started can be as simple as just a few minutes a day just remember to keep focused and you will see greater results. Here’s to your organized home office!
