A while ago on Facebook, I posed the question, “You know it’s time to tidy your desk when…” and there were some interesting responses.
For most, the act of tidying a desk is boring, if not excruciating. Here’s a list of 10 things to do while you tidy your desk:
- Listen to a teleclass or podcast
- Wait by the phone on hold
- Gossip on the phone
- Light a candle and create some Zen
- Eat lunch
- Go shopping! (This one is for anyone who believes as I do that D is for Delegate. Just get someone else to do it for you 😉 )
So, however you do it, make time to tidy your desk. It will pay off in the long run.
