ORGANIZING DESK FOR AN ADMIRABLE WORK OR STUDY TIME
A decluttered desk is proven to reduce stress. And why not? If you have things you need at hand, imagine the time you can get for productivity. Whatever be the case, a clean desk is sure to boost your energy and give you ample time in doing/completing your work, rather than searching or decluttering your things. Even your thesis writing time will be cut in half if you have an organized desk.
Imagine a client is on call and you need to find an important document, he will be so impressed when you already have it near you. Now imagine the disappointment of the client when you spend more than 5 minutes searching for an important document.
No doubt, the youth thinks that a messy look is cool, but the bare truth is that it is not! A cluttered desk has no room for productivity or imagination. So, here are a few tips.
Get rid of unimportant things
Turn by turn, remove the things that you do not need. Either discard them straight away or store them elsewhere. Just keep the most important things on your desk. And if your desk has a drawer, even that has to have only the important things, as this is where most clutter gets stored. So free it as much as possible.
All the papers, extra pens, useless cutlery, snacks, is a distractor on your desk. There should always be a minimum of personal things on your desk.
Keep the most important things at hand
The first thing is to make sure your workstation i.e., your desktop, has ample space. It should have a place to breathe and be adjusted. If you are going to use a mouse, make sure your mouse has more than the required space to move smoothly. (if you are a graphic designer, you will know why?) Then keep an organizer for all your stationery items, so that your pens, pencils, pens, coloured markers, stickers are in one place.
Then comes your chargers. These are really important so, tie them tangle-free and store them nicely in a place where there are quickly accessible. Even if they are in the plug points, make sure they are tied or pinned properly. Stack the bundle of papers needed and also raw papers on a side for handy use.
How a decluttered desk spreads positivity?
An organized desk will help enhance your productivity in a lot of ways. You can save a lot of time on imagination and doing your work well. An unclean desk is also a home to allergens and bacteria, which may affect your health, thus affecting your work/study time.
Also, when you have all the important tasks lined up, you can finish them before time. The most important thing is that an uncluttered desk symbolizes professionalism. You feel like working more professionally in a clean environment.
Thus, the first thing you should do today is clean your desk. It will take some of your extra time, but it will save you a lot of time tomorrow for sure.
