How to Organize Your Desk

Organize Your Desk

Your work environment is often a reflection of how you feel. Some people are more organized and have a more personal style while others are less. Your workstation needs to be set up to accommodate your needs and productivity best. It should also be comfortable and conducive to work.  If you find yourself overwhelmed by piles of paperwork and disorganized files, it’s time to take action. Here are some suggestions for how to organize your desk:

Prioritize your stuff

Your desktop is big enough to house all of the things that you probably don’t need. It’s time to get organized. Remove all the items from your desk at the beginning of your day and as you work, only bring up the things you need. This will tell you what is essential to keep on your desk to be more productive and efficient.

Go with the workflow

Many people have left-to-right tendencies when it comes to their work environment. This means that incoming items are on the left, while outgoing items are on the right. Creating a no-parking zone around your desk can help reduce stress levels.

Reduce visual clutter

The desktop may be orderly, but it can also be cluttered. If there are too many things to do, it can become a distraction. Organize your desk by removing notes from around your computer screen to create a clean view. Replace some to-do lists with an inspirational quote or a photo that brings you joy, so your desk has some work-life balance.

Go digital

If you haven’t migrated to digital productivity tools yet, then it’s time to get started. This will help you organize and communicate more effectively, and it will also give you the tools to monitor and manage your tasks.

Check under your desk

The cords and cables under your desk are not only a safety hazard; they can also damage your skin. Use Velcro wraps and cord tamers to prevent tangles and give your feet more room. If you have old boxes of files under your desk, go through them to see what you can discard.

Wipe it down

Get into the habit of regularly cleaning your work area. Doing so helps keep your office looking its best and create a healthy space to be productive.

What Our Clients Say

Jeff S

I had to find a place to work while visiting Daytona Beach. I needed a quiet place where I could take some conference calls, and stay on top of my emails. The team at Work Webb were extremely friendly and set me up in a beautiful office for 4 days. I had everything I needed (including fast internet), and I was steps away from coffee and restaurants. The whole experience was wonderful, and I would certainly use them again the next time I’m in town. Highly recommend!
