Have you ever tripped over over a pile or maybe stubbed your toe on a box in your office?
If so, here’s another productivity tip for your Time Management Revolution:
As we talked about in the prior blog post in this series, it’s very important to set up a productive office. Sometimes that takes just a little bit of tweaking and then you’re ready to go with your workflow. But, if you’ve got those piles and those boxes, it’s going to take a little bit longer to dig out of that office.
It’s very important that you’re realistic with how much time it will take, because if you underestimate it and you think you can go through years of paperwork in only two hours, then you’re going to set yourself up for a disappointment and then you will not be motivated to continue.
So, here’s a way to judge how much time it’ll take. It takes approximately one hour to go through a banker’s box size of small objects or to quickly go through that amount of papers. That will help you estimate how much time it will take you to work on your office. You can set aside 30 minutes a day or possibly a couple of Saturdays so you can get all of that straightened up, get the piles cleared out, and get your productive office set up.
With your organized office space, you’ll be able to make better decisions about how you use your time.
