Office Quick Tips
Piles of Papers / Files
Do you have piles of paper sitting around your office with no home? Sticky notes all over the walls? Are you afraid to file things away because you might not be able to find them again? Is the task just too big and stays in the 'too hard' basket? How about tackling the job one step at a time. Set yourself a goal to manage one pile of paper each day or week until your desk is clear. But... don't hide those papers, find a home for them so you can find them again. If you don't have a system, that's the place to start. Take control of your office, reduce stress and frustration.
Review the day
At the end of each day spend 10-15 minutes reviewing the jobs still to be done. Then plan the next day. It clears your head and means that the next morning you're ready to go as soon as you reach your desk - focusing on the main tasks for the day. From Robyn Pearce, Getting a Grip on Time.
Saving unnecessary paper clutters your files, your office and your desk. Make good use of the wastebasket. Are you ready for a 'de-clutter'? Assist You can help with the process.
Diary in time to refresh yourself
I know you have all heard this one before, but it was reinforced for me recently. Diary in time for yourself, don't just 'fit it in' when you have a spare five or ten minutes. Schedule that daily walk or swim, take the time for a relaxing cuppa during the day, refresh yourself! Get outside and enjoy the sunshine when its there - it could save you from burnout. You will be all the more productive for it.
