Boost Your Productivity at Work With a Clean, Decluttered Desk

There is an old adage from Albert Einstein that goes, “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?” Luckily, you do not solely have those two options to pick from. You can opt to have an organized desk that allows you to carry out your work responsibilities with minimal distractions. If it has been a while since your desk had some care and attention, then it is high time you pay it some attention.

Determine If Your Desk Needs Work

Ask a coworker

There is a fine line between slight disorganization and utter chaos on a desk. Some people find that having a messy desk helps their productivity. Fortunately, there are two ways to determine if your desk could benefit from a little spring cleaning. For starters, you need to determine the overall vibe your desk is giving everyone else in your office. If you regularly meet with clients at your desk and it is filled with food wrappers and out-of-date paperwork, then you may be sending off a detrimental appearance. For anyone unsure how their desk is coming across, simply ask someone for his or her honest opinion.

Next, you also need to figure out if your workload is suffering from having a messy desk. Do you regularly have to spend sizable chunks of time locating papers? Do you routinely miss deadlines even if it is only by a day? Productivity can dip for any reason. If yours has dropped, then you should definitely look at your cluttered desk as a culprit.

Follow These Tips for a Cleaner Desk

Depending on exactly how much clutter has filled your desk, it may seem like a daunting task trying to clean it. It honestly does not take much time, and as long as you are willing to carve out an hour in your day, you can make your desk so much better.

During this cleaning day, remove everything from your desk. Once it is all off, browse through everything to determine what would be beneficial to have directly on your desk and what would be better elsewhere. For example, you may need pens and a notepad readily available, but your stapler can be placed somewhere else if you do not staple things too often.
