When it comes to organization, there are two types of people (with a few variations): those who are naturally orderly and those who are not afraid of clutter.
But when a collection of mugs begins to form on your desk maybe a reorganization is in order. Not everyone is born orderly, but this is not inevitable. So here are some steps to follow to regain control of your workspace and gain productivity.
1) We sort, we throw
Since the goal is to reorganize rented property in Gurgaon, we might as well take the opportunity to sort it out. The ideal is to sort out anything that is not necessary and throw away what you no longer use or which is obsolete.
If you haven’t used it for more than 3 months, you probably don’t need it after all. Maybe you will even find out that there is a beautiful wooden desk under all this mess!
2) We clean
Now that your office is cleared, this is the perfect opportunity to do some cleaning. We spend so much time in our office that it is a haven for germs.
Think about your mouse and keyboard that you put your hands on dozens of times a day. The ideal way to start again on a clean base is to use a disinfectant wipe or a cloth lightly moistened with disinfectant to decontaminate your work tools. Don’t forget to wipe your desk.
3) We compartmentalize
Your computer is certainly your main working tool. Whether it is a laptop, a desktop PC with one or two screens, it is important to give it sufficient and flexible space.
You should be able to slide out your keyboard or laptop to quickly create space in front of you if you need to write or sign something for example.
Do you tend to accumulate papers? Invest in a mail basket to store loose papers. If you are particularly motivated, you can even buy several mail trays to organize your papers in order of importance and urgency.
4) We limit distractions
This includes personal smartphones with their notifications blinking insistently but also personal items. Personal items are important in creating a pleasant working atmosphere, but too many become distracting.
Try to keep only a limited number (less than 3 ideally). Same goes for supplies, no need to have 6 pens and 5 pencils, you only need one working pen and pencil. The important thing is to limit duplicates and what is not absolutely useful.
5) Tidy up the cables
The charging cables of your smartphone or your carrier computer are only of occasional use, store them in a drawer when not in use.
Power cables, on the other hand, can quickly form a jungle under your desk and help make it look cluttered. Take some time out in a slow time of the day to untangle any knots and you can even invest in a cable tidying solution to keep everything tidy.
This may seem trivial but will give your office space in India a more tidy visual appearance. And if you see your desktop organized, you’ll be more inclined to keep it that way.
