A messy workspace (whether downtown or down the hall) reduces the needed space to work effectively and affects your creativity.
The 2nd Tuesday in March is Organize Your Home Office Day. This issue includes tips to help you organize your home-office so that you can run your business, your home and life more efficiently.
|The Organized Home-Office|
|1) Develop a system near the entrance of your home or in your home office for incoming mail. A small file box with file folders representing each
family member or letter trays designated for incoming mail will help to keep track of mail.
2) Keep business and personal files and receipts separate. Color-coding ( blue-business, purple-personal) may help you distinguish information.
3) Use drawer organizers to keep items in your desk drawers organized and accessible.
4) Develop systems to track business and personal projects by using desktop organizers and filing carts. Use Bulletin Boards or Whiteboards as visual reminders for projects.
5) Schedule interrupted time regularly to open mail, file statements and receipts to maintain order in your home office.
