Your desk is your command center in the office. A well-organized workspace can help set a positive tone and improve your productivity levels, as it takes much less time to find what you need. Below are some tips on how to organize your desk to enhance efficiency and productivity.
It’s All About the Layout
How your desk space is laid out can significantly impact your efficiency. Your computer monitor should be right in front of you at eye-level and a 17-inch distance from your body. Any items that you often use, such as your phone or writing supplies, should be placed on your dominant side to avoid reaching across.
Organize Your Supplies
Ensure your every-day supplies are easily accessible on the desk. Any items you use less frequently should be stored neatly away in a drawer or organizer. Having to get up for a pencil, paper clip, or notebook can shut your brain off from what you are working on, which can be detrimental to your overall productivity.
Do Not Over Decorate
Though adding some personal flair to your desk is a great way to make it more your own, overdoing it can be distracting and look messy. Stick with 3-4 personal items on your desk that help you feel positive, but not distracted.
