We all have only 24 hours in a day, seven days a week, and it is no secret that more often than not, our work environment and to-do lists start to look jumbled and chaotic.
One of the main reasons is having files and papers that lie around the office and on our desks – and in so many instances, these are no longer needed or have any further use.
Tasks and files that are no longer needed often need a home, and for most of us, there is not enough immediate storage space to put all the excess paperwork and office equipment that we are not using at that time.
The secret to declaring war on chaos is to start by filing away all unnecessary items in self-storage units that you will be able to access easily should you need admittance to these old records. Granted, much information is stored in the Cloud, but for lawyers and accountants, old files and clients that go back in history are often kept in old-style hard copies for reference should the need arise.
Today’s watchwords in the workplace are: controlling information overload, managing time and to put a stop to procrastination – managing your space and your time will make a mountain of difference in your workday, resulting in heightened efficiency.
