More space won’t clear your desk clutter — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
If you lack surface area to work in your office, you might think the problem is lack of space. So you add another file cabinet or a larger desk, only to find the situation worsens. Why? Because clutter usually results from an inability to prioritize and discard unnecessary paper, not from limited space. Reserve an hour to file or throw away every stray piece of paper in your office. Repeat as necessary every week. If you stick to this schedule, you’ll find there’s plenty of space to work right under your nose.
