Decluttering Your Home Office
The home office may be the epitome of the perfect idea in theory which does not translate especially well in practice. That is because all too often, the home office becomes the dumping ground for the entire household. Where will we hide the birthday presents? Where can we store the flat-pack furniture until we get round to building it? And unfortunately, the answer always seems to be the home office.
Far from becoming the hub of your productivity, the home office can quickly become an assault course just to get to the desk, never mind turning on the computer. That then leads to a reluctance to even enter the room and choosing to work on your laptop rather than the powerful desktop you purchased for the bulk of your work.
Getting Things Done – The Key To Productivity
One of the most important tips to becoming productive is to ensure that things are getting done, and the first step to that is clearing out the clutter in your home office. Every member of the family needs to understand that the home office is vital to the family’s success.
The best way to demonstrate this is by clearing out the home office of all but the essential business tools – a chair, a desk, a computer, a printer, and maybe a radio or smart speaker. The problem many people face is what to do with all of the stuff which was previously stored in the home office.
The price of hiring storage has dropped dramatically over the last few years, and it might surprise you to learn how inexpensive it actually is to store your excess property safely and securely away from your home.
Think of it this way, if clearing out the clutter from your office can improve your productivity by 20 per cent, it is likely that you could earn ten times the storage costs. For ease of maths, if the storage space costs you £2 per day, and as a result of decluttering you earn an extra £20 per day due to your improved productivity, would that be a good deal?
Find Things Fast
Another benefit of decluttering your home office is that you can and will be able to find things faster. As a teenager, when we were supposed to be doing homework, we all liked nothing better than to waste an hour looking for a stapler that we desperately needed, when in reality, all we were trying to do was waste time.
The same principle applies to your home office. Time spent searching for a particular item is damaging your productivity.
A neat and tidy office with all of the important items to hand will save you considerable time and make you significantly more productive.
