Tips To Organize Your Home Office! by BB Lee(C)2003
You search your desk frantically for an important file. An email you printed only moments earlier is lost under stacks of overflowing files. The telephone is ringing, but you can't reach it because you are at your fax machine retrieving papers across room.
You finally answer telephone and search wildly around your desk for a notebook and pencil. You find nothing, zip, nada!
So, what's problem?
You finally realize that if you want your home office to run smoothly you must take immediate steps to organize it.
Whether your business is full-time or part-time. Even if you are starting small or on a grand scale, you will certainly run into problems if you avoid pre-planning and organizing your office interface to run in an efficient manner.
This is a no-brainer! You must organize your space so that all essential office items are within arms reach. This will lead to a smoother, more productive, work day. And make it easier to find needed items at a moments notice.
It's surprising, number of serious home office workers who do not understand this important fact.
Are you ready to get organized? Let's get started!
The desk. Get rid of clutter. Go through that stack of paper piled high on your desk. Make this a habit at start of work day. Be brutal. If you don't need it, toss it in wastebasket.
Now search those desk drawers. Why are you keeping old broken pens, yellowed scotch tape, receipts from purchases made ten years ago or clips from a magazine you read last summer. Either file important stuff or toss it now! Also, purchase desk drawer organizers at your local office supply store. These handy items have compartments to neatly organize your extra essentials.
