When you’re organized, you’re able to tackle work-related tasks with ease. You’re not spending time looking for something you misplaced. You don’t have to worry about missing deadlines because you forgot to mark a project on your calendar. Once you have systems in place, the workday becomes much smoother.
Here’s what you need to do to maximize efficiency by getting your workspace in order:
- Clean your desk before leaving for the evening. That way, when you arrive to work the next day, you’ll be ready to work. You’ll be able to find the things that you need to get the job done right.
- Switch to cloud-based applications for sharing documents, memos, and manuals. Not only will it save you a ton in printing costs, it will also prevent a lot of paper waste. You won’t be forced to hang onto things that you seldom look at because you can reference them anytime on the cloud.
- Sync your calendars. Use an application that allows you to sync your schedule across multiple devices. That way, you can refer to your phone or tablet whenever you need updates on what your day’s obligations look like. You won’t miss an appointment or important call because you’ll be ready for it.
- Create two zones. Keep one separate space for computer work-related items. The second area should be for non-computer work. This space should give you ample room to sign papers, scan documents or mail flyers. It’s important that you’re able to complete all the tasks required of you with ease.
Use your BinderBag to store needed paperwork in a place where you can retrieve it easily. Forget about a briefcase. A messenger bag is a far easier option for you to use. Choose the color or pattern that you like best, add the binder of your choice, and prepare for better, more organized days.
