For 2 weeks I have been comitted to keeping my main work desk clean. Every project in it’s own folder and only one folder open at a time.
Now the credenza behind me is a different matter. It was actually the easy part of getting my desk clean. Everything was simply moved to the credenza. Viola, a clean desk!!
Seriously, I am trying to do this one small thing. Hopefully the good habit will spread to other areas of my office. My next promotion will be to a Director at which point I really MUST be more organized. Hey, that could link nicely to another goal of “growth at work”.
