Welcome to day seventeen of this purging series. Today we are going to be doing our at home Office Desk/Space.
Our goal is to spend 20 minutes or less on this task. Throughout this series there may be tasks that only take 5-10 mins and that is great and gives so much motivation to keep on with the tasks in the days ahead.
Also, during these daily tasks for our purging series if there is a day where it does not apply to you or that place does not need it you can select another area to do with the same idea of 20 minutes or less.
Our desk space is very important it can also collect a lot on top of it. Having a clutter free and organized work space can help so much with our head space and our productivity. Having a lot out can clutter our head space making us less productive and easily distracted. It will also make it easy to find what we need. I have an home office room, currently sharing this room with hubby and my 9 year old. Hubby has his office desk, my 9 year old has an area setup for online learning, and then there is my space. I have found that since online learning started, more ends on top of my desk space. Either it’s me who was working in a different room and I just put my things on top on the desk when done, or my kids papers and other school things. I am lucky that I do have my filing cabinet organized and my desk drawers, so when things get out of hand on my desk I can easily clean up and put all things where they go.
It’s not too bad, but of course it still needed some love. I try to always have my desk ready for the next day each night. If I could not get it done that night, the next day before starting to work in that space I take 5-10 mins to go through and deal with it. This task doesn’t need to be an actual room that is just your home office, this can apply to the space/area you use to work at. Mine took no more then 15 mins, I even went thru some papers that needed to be reviewed.
