Just for today, here's a quick office organising challenge.
- Set your timer for 10 minutes
- Put on some upbeat music ("You can't hurry love" - Phil Collins does it for me)
- Throw away all the stuff that doesn't belong on your desk
- Sort and make piles of paper - to action, to file, to pay, etc.
- Label these piles with post-it notes
- Return errant items to where they belong
Now doesn't that feel better?
