Paper clutter is the No. 1 problem for most businesses and 4.3 hours a week are used searching for papers, according to the National Association of Professional Organizations.
Get rid of paper.
Some people like to write reminders on Post-It Notes and put them all over. Don't do this. Keep a notepad of reminders.
While some people like to have a bunch of photos of family and friends in their workspace, it's probably better to go with one or two. If you like a lot of photos, invest in a small collage photo frame so that the photos are more organized.
If there is anything that can be put in a drawer, put it there. This would include pens, papers and books.
Decluttering your workspace is sure to make the workday less stressful. But if your closet, dresser, bedroom and car are organized, the day is sure to get off to a good start.
