The second Monday in January is Clean Off Your Desk Day.
While I try to keep my desk relatively clutter free, even I need to stop and reassess periodically.
Here’s what I’m doing today to start clearing off my desk:
- A thank you card that was so cute I wanted to continue to enjoy it – posted on my bulletin board
- A FAX that fell behind the printer (oops!) – shredded because the action was completed
- Items for my etsy shop – put in holding bins until I photograph and list them
- Recipe for oven pancake – downloaded from the newspaper’s Web site and filed electronically
I bought a small cart yesterday to get my printer off my desk. Unfortunately, I have to put it together myself, which will take a few days. Otherwise, the quick fixes I put in place already have made a big impact on my desktop real estate.
What can you take off your desk by next Monday?
