Tips for organizing your workplace

January 7, 2013 

Wendy Ellin, author of “Enough Is Enough, Get Control of Your Stuff – One Woman’s Insight Into an Organized Life,” says “the most important thing to remember is that we never get it all done.” She offers these tips:

•  De-clutter your office. Get rid of everything that you don’t need or use.

•  Set up a system that allows you to make organizational decisions with everything that comes your way.

•  Have a place for the “further action” items.

•  Be realistic about how much you schedule in a 24-hour period. Overcommitting is a way to set yourself up for failure.
