I spend more and more time at my desk these days, doing everything from preparing the family taxes to working on this blog. Because of this, my workspace is constantly changing. Holding the clutter at bay is challenging, so I prefer to keep nearby only a few quality items that serve multiple purposes over a stockpile of things I might never need.
Organization in many ways feeds my desire to control the spaces around me. I find that I am most productive when I am able to see, think, manage, create and function clearly. I cannot do that in a space of clutter and/or a space that is not my own, even if only temporarily. These days, what’s on my desk has been representative of personal and professional priorities.
For the sake of this post, I invite you to take inventory of your own desk. What are you housing in the spaces you occupy? What has your time and attention? How are you prioritizing it? Why are you prioritizing it? We often spend far too much time carrying and creating space for things that are not ours.
A critical component of life satisfaction is happiness. As you consider the clutter in your life, also consider what you’re going to do about it. If the answer to that question is that you’re not sure, but you’re ready to do something, schedule a FREE success call. A better version of yourself is depending on it.
