I'll do a part of these tasks this week. My desk desperately needs reorganization.

Have you forgotten what the surface of your desk looks like? Here are 5 mini challenges to help you say good-bye to desk chaos.
1) Remove everything Yes, I know, this alone is probably stressing you out. But the best way to begin is to start anew. Get a laundry basket or a box and remove everything from the surface of your desk. When the surface is empty, clean it off. Find homes for all non-paper items you’ve removed. Remember, the surface of your desk is not a home. The trash can should be your first solution for any junk.

2) Return the essentials You can now put the 3 or 4 items that are absolutely essential back on your desk...your computer, your telephone, your planner or calendar...and one or two extra essentials. You can also add a framed photo or two. From today on, keep your desk clean and clear...this will encourage higher productivity and increased creativity.

3) Go shopping Whether you go shopping in your house for something you already own, or you go to your local office supply store, get yourself an upright file organizer to contain tasks/projects in progress. Use something that looks presentable and matches your style and personality.

4) Add papers to your upright organizer Sort through the papers you initially removed and organize them into labeled files. If they’re papers related to tasks/projects in progress, you can put them in your upright organizer. Papers that are not related to tasks/projects in progress should either be filed in your filng cabinet or recycled...whichever is most appropriate.

5) Create an incoming/outgoing system One of the biggest reasons tops of desks get so chaotic is because there’s no system in place for incoming and outgoing papers. Incoming paper should be sorted through immediately. Non-essential paper should be recycled before it ever hits the surface of your desk. Papers that only need to be kept for future reference, can be filed immediately. Papers related to tasks/projects in progress go in your upright desk organizer. Outgoing mail can be placed in a wall organizer for this very purpose www.getorganizednow.com/organizing-c
