When I work with clients who want to eat healthier, one of the first things we do is remove junk foods from their home. We set up their environment to support their goals and improve their likelihood of success.
The same concept holds true in business.
Most people have desks that are so filled with papers and clutter that they look more like a storage site than a work space. This clutter becomes a constant distraction, calling their mind’s attention away from the task at hand. It also contributes to a feeling of heaviness and being closed in, diminishing their energy and ability to be effective. There is even scientific evidence that a cluttered space can contribute to a cluttered mind.
A healthy work environment is clear, clean, and systematized. Creating an office that supports your success is showing respect for you and your business. And, it’s not that hard to do:
- Clear the clutter and file away anything that is not used regularly
- Create systems for handling things to be done, priorities, and follow up
- Warm up your space with pictures and inspiring decor
