Offices and office spaces continual to evolve as more of our work becomes digital. There’s lot of digital decluttering to do as a result. This Spring more your office forward to become more electronically organized.
All offices are busy and it’s a low priority to eliminate digital clutter. Start a 15 minute daily edit of digital clutter. Look first at email, then documents. In multiple 15 minute time slots you can pare down what is not needed. Now assess your duplicate documents and drafts. You can add these to trash to clear space and clear up confusion of the final document.
Attend to your desk top
We’re talking computer desk top here! Add documents into folders and eliminiate any extra icons. There’s clarity here now. Add a beautiful and serene screen saver for you to see when you are disconnected.
If you are a social media maven, it’s your graphics that can also need refreshing. Use a content driven organizing system. Group your graphics and photos by topic in your pictures to easily access and use your items.
Unsubscribe to unwanted
You may have once wanted to learn about a topic, and now you are saturated with email subscriptions. Take 15 minutes to unsubscribe rather than delete your unwanted subscriptions. Less incominng newsletters free up time. If you don’t want to let go of these, or incoming coupons, create an additional email account to directly access this when wanted.
Update your passwords
We change our passwords, hoping to remember then each time. Update your password keeper in order to easily log on. Change passwords if it’s been a while for sensitive sites. Now log in on all your devices so that you have access from your smart phone or tablet.
Control the cords
Technology advances quickly. It’s time to recycle your older devices and cords. Gather these together with the cords to donate. Label the remaining cords to know what goes together. Store the cords at point of use in a drawer if used frequently or in a box under a cabinet if not.
Now you and your office are ready for a productive Spring!
