An organized workspace is vital to promoting focused, concise work. When it’s cluttered and messy, it can feel impossible to get anything done.
Here’s how to turn your messy workspace into a place where you can be productive.
Get Rid of Everything You Don’t Need Go through every object in your workspace and ask yourself if you really need it, use it often, or if it is important to keep. If you can’t find a good reason to have it, donate it. Get rid of the idea that you might need it in the future. If you didn’t need it in the past, you probably won’t need it in the future
Organize Things Based on How Often You Use Them Separate your items based on the type of task (e.g. notebooks for writing or pens for drawing) and put them in containers that are easy to access from your workspace. Store the items you don’t use as frequently so they are out of the way
Manage Your Wires A tangle of wires can cause clutter and feel messy, so organize a method to hide your wires and make a system to hold them in place
Get Comfy Allowing yourself to be comfortable while working ensures that you stay focused longer, as you won’t be distracted by aches and pains. For example: invest in a good chair
Don’t Make Your Space Boring You spend a lot of time here so give it some character! Spice it up with figurines or art. It will give you inspiration and let you feel at home while you work
