Break the task into smaller chunks

If you want to get overwhelmed with de cluttering – then see your office as a gigantic mess with seemingly nowhere to start.   However, if you want to feel like you are taking concrete steps to accomplish your dream of having an organized office – then see if you can do what many project managers say “break the task up into smaller chunks!”  Here are some ways you can apply this philosophy to your office organization:

  •  Start small. Start with one pile – Begin someplace.  Perhaps it is one pile of papers or one filing cabinet or one part of your desk. 
  • Put the timer on for 5 minutes (see previous blog)
  • Celebrate your success!
