It can be a real challenge keeping things in check when you’re busy juggling presentations, meetings, and deadlines. It’s even harder when your workspace is a mess, and you don’t have the slightest idea how you’ll actually get your work done. We’ve all been there, girl.
Here, we rounded up simple but effective ways on how you could get things up and running in no time.
1. Clean, clean, clean!
First things first, figure out what needs to go and what doesn’t. Throw away old documents and printouts that you no longer need, and get rid of all the junk lying around, such as those old notes still pinned on your to-do board and the dried out pens in your drawer. This will give you more space to work on, free up some storage space, and make it easier to keep track of where everything you need is.
2. Keep your space clutter-free.
Keep your documents and office supplies intact by buying organizers and small containers. You can even DIY with shoeboxes and mason jars if you don’t have the extra budget. Always designate a place for your stuff, such as your laptop, your bag, and your reference books or magazines, and keep your desk decor to a minimum.
3. Sort out your emails.
Aside from your office area, cleaning your online workspace (especially your digital desktop and mailbox) is also an art worth learning. Create folders to separate important emails from the ones to be deleted, and disable insignificant notifications. It takes just a few clicks to create the folders that would make life easier for you and segregate all your pertinent files. Likewise, delete the hundreds of unread and irrelevant newsletters or promotions in your inbox, and say goodbye to year-old conversations or files.
4. Create a game plan (and stick to it).
Make a list of all the tasks at hand, and create a plan on how you’ll get it all done. Here’s a tip: Use your free time, such as when you’re stuck in traffic on the way to work (and you know this always happens!), to do some research or to start some of the menial work. Also, set a timeline that you can keep track of by using your digital calendar, and always be wary of your deadlines by setting up reminders or alarms.
5. Invest in a reliable notebook.
Nope, not the traditional one that can easily get lost or thrown away—we’re talking about a powerful ultrabook. A handy laptop has a reliable battery life with a memory capacity far bigger than that of smartphones and tablets. It also allows you to work practically anywhere. This is extremely handy for girls with demanding corporate jobs (and possibly a side hustle or two). The right gadget helps you organize all of your documents, videos, and pictures in one place while letting you keep track of your emails and social networking accounts. You can even sync your notebook’s calendar, email, and other files to your phone if you wish.
