Productivity Pointer – Reduce That Clutter

If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, what is the
significance of a clean desk?

– Laurence J. Peter

A colleague once said that clutter is the result of unmade
decisions. Look around you at the clutter in your office or home
and ask yourself what you should do with it. I’ll bet you’ve been
avoiding the answer. I know because I do it all the time.

One of the major reasons we allow things to accumulate is because
we don’t have a place to put them. Rather than do something about
it we allow it to sit until there’s time to take care of it.

This is a perfect week to make space or (or eliminate) the stuff
that has been accumulating throughout the year. First look at your
storage (filing space). Do you have enough room? Are your file
drawers bursting with old documents? If so block out a half day to
purge the old so that you have room for the new.

Have a Happy New Year!
