Who doesn’t want to make 2014 a year of success for the books? I don’t know anyone who would say no to that! One of the most simple but most brilliant ways to help pave the road to your success is de-cluttering. Yes, that’s right ladies. Organization may not be everyone’s (or most people’s for that matter) strong suit, but it is something that we all need to strive for in our every day lives in order to be the most productive we can be.
Have you ever noticed when your closet or vanity is organized it takes you so much less time to get ready and out the door? That’s because everything is nice and neat in order so you don’t have to waste so much time searching high and low for what you need. This same philosophy translates into your work area. When your desk is clear and de-cluttered it’s almost as if you are starting each day off with a clean slate. Clean off your desk and take note, ladies, seriously! You will surprise yourself with how much more productive you can be when the area around you is clear of all the junk, papers, empty bowls, etc. You spend less time searching for things you need, that perspective hostess’ number, the address you could have swore you wrote on a pink post-it note and where on earth did you set your phone?!
Keeping a clean and de-cluttered desk isn’t easy, in fact it takes constant work. We all do it, we all get lazy, but we need to make it one of our business goals to keep things de-cluttered. This mentality also translate into your other business goals whether it’s getting more bookings or staying on top of post party follow ups. We all have great intentions, but eventually we start to slack off just a bit. This is when we need to snap out of it and get right back on top of it again.
Now stop reading and start de-cluttering that desk and make the most of the time you’ve got!!
