Is it worth your time?

 Ask yourself these questions to see if it might be worth your time to become more organized.

  1. Do phone calls/emails go unanswered for more than 24 hours?
  2. Do you ever feel like you don’t know where to start working on a project?
  3. Do you have action items on your to-do list that have been there for more than a week?
  4. Do you easily get distracted by the clutter on your desk?
  5. If someone had to fill in for you, would they get frustrated because they couldn’t find what they needed?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, disorganization may be negatively affecting your job performance.

Start by opening your calendar and scheduling an hour every day this week to focus on organizing. Take one item from the list above that you answered “yes” to and tackle it.  The hours you spend organizing will not be wasted because your improved efficiency will quickly make up for the time spent. 

Make it a habit to plan today for tomorrow.  Before you leave work for the day, make sure you have a game plan for tomorrow so you can hit the ground running as soon as you arrive at work.  

Good luck and have a positively productive day!
