Challenge of the Week: Organize Your Desk

Desk Clutter

It is a new year and a new time to refresh yourself and your surroundings. Out with the old, in with the new, get started off on the right foot! Or the left, or both, whichever you want to stand on.

You have probably been thinking about it for a while, maybe stared it a few times, and somehow got distracted or busy and you suddenly stopped and left it as it was. This week, however, is the time for you to make your change.

It is time for you to get serious and clean that desk that you have avoided cleaning for all last year. There may be papers thrown about, pens lying around that do not work, snacks that you brought in at one point but cannot remember when and just don't bother to even touch. I am not talking just about organization, but actually cleaning AND organizing your desk, meaning that after you are done throwing away all the things you do not need, that you actually get some Lysol or other cleaning product and wipe down your entire desk area including the mouse, keyboard, screen, and the chair rests of the very chair you sit on.

It is time for you to take control of your life and realize that in order for you to look like a professional and act like a profession, not only do you have to think like one, but you should be clean AND organized like one as well.

If you have papers strewn about, shred what you don't need, and organize into alphabetical, numerical, or date order what you do need. Cleanliness says a lot about you and how you carry yourself not just in the office, but at home as well. As your co-workers and your boss walk by, they are all checking out your desk area. They may not say anything or bring it up ever, but they are secretly making judgments against how you probably are in all areas of your life.

I urge you to clean yourself up, get your act together, and make a change in your life. If you are feeling depressed, sad, lazy, and have avoided cleaning your house or your car for the past year, than you can start by cleaning your desk. It's a small area but represents a huge part of your life. After all, you are mostly in that area for about 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week, and about 51 weeks out of the year.

Stop thinking about doing something and start doing it!

Get started today! Get your desk organized and clean!

Feel free to leave a comment with a picture of your beautiful desk once you have cleaned it this week!

  4. While my desk isn't too bad, I did make the effort to practice what I preached, and I cleaned it up during the week, but wiped everything down before I left for work on Friday. I do not know why, but my desk tends to attract dust like crazy. So it took me about 2 lysol wipes to get it all cleaned. I wiped down everything including the mouse and keyboard.

    Feel free to share your desk photos! Here is mine!
