Some people believe that a clean workspace means an uncreative temperament. This is a sad misconception. In fact, an orderly workspace helps to encourage productivity. You can take steps to keep your workplace neat and tidy. The most important way is to clear off your desk at the end of a work session.
Start with filing all of the paper on your desk. You should be putting it into labeled folders. If you put paperwork away out of sight it won’t get lost, plus your desk will be much neater. If you need to refer to some information frequently, try making a small cheat sheet of info to keep under your mouse. This also cuts down on the paper on the desk surface.
Consider using a wireless printer. This prevents you from having to have the printer on or near your desk, and eliminates bulky cable clutter. Your printer can be elsewhere, freeing up your desktop.
Your printer is not the only computer equipment that you can get with wireless technology. See if you can’t find a mouse and keyboard that use wireless technology as well.
If you can use these, you can then put the items in your desk drawer when you aren’t using them. Then you have no clutter from cords, and no clutter from they keyboard or mouse itself.
A good old fashioned pencil cup works wonders for getting accessories under control. Keep your pencils and pens you use regularly in the cup. The rest should be put away in a drawer. Digital media (DVDs, CDs) should be put up in a storage container such as a notebook media organizer.
Photos are pleasant mementos that can really brighten up an office, but if you display too many of them they become clutter. Instead of having them all out at once, try grouping them into a single photo cube or collage frame.
If you have a lot of pictures you want to be able to display, get a digital picture frame. These let you rotate digital images, and they all show through the same frame with the quality of high-definition televised images.
