Culprit #7: Disorganized Workspace

Your primary workspace might be the top of your desk, the nurse’s station, or most likely, a combination of the two. Either way, if it’s messy, you’ll end up wasting a lot of time looking for things.

The solution: A scattered workspace makes for a scattered mind. De-clutter, and you’ll manage your work more efficiently. Before you leave the office, clear your desk of cans, cups, food and paperwork. Use that file cabinet for something other than your box of saltines. Recycle paperwork you’re never going to use. And don’t add unnecessary items to your files – if you don’t need to print something out, don’t. Your company’s shared drive is perfectly capable of storing documents tidily.
