Desk Distractions

In order to be productive at work (or at home) you need to have a good, clean desk on which to work.  Consider      eliminating these items from your workspace:

¨ Things you used to like but don’t anymore

¨ Desk “accessories” that aren’t

¨ Excess anything (paper, pens, coffee cups)

¨ Piles (of anything)

¨ Food and drinks

¨ Make-up, lotions, chapstick, etc.

¨ Knick-knacks

¨ Multiple pictures

¨ Office supplies you are hoarding

¨ Books, magazines, reference materials

¨ Bags, purses, containers

¨ Anything that distracts from your overall productivity
