Everyone has a goal at the beginning of a new year, but we all know it’s easy to get distracted from the goals we set for ourselves. If you’re looking to be more organized, here are a few of my favorite tips to stay focused on this goal in 2016.

1. Declutter your desk. With great new storage options from HON, there’s never been a better time to clear out some space. Too much paperwork saved up on your worksurface? If you don’t need to reference it often, consider filing it as archival storage using HON Flagship – or recycle it! If you’ll need to keep the documents close for everyday use, our new Voi Standing Height storage or recently introduced Contain pedestals and towers are just a few of HON’s wide variety of active storage options.

Now is a great time to sift through the important emails and weed out the junk. Start 2016 with a clean email box so you’ll be ready to tackle the essential tasks.

3. When spring rolls around, weed through your closet and donate any clothing items you didn’t wear all winter. A good rule of thumb is if you haven’t worn it for 6 months, it has to go! Consider doing this every quarter so you can start each season fresh with an organized closet and set your best foot forward in the office.

4. Set reminders to help you check in on your progress. Don’t let half the year pass before you mobilize! Keep your tasks and calendar organized so you can put all your effort into getting the job done.

Have you noticed you’ve been a little less focused at work? Is it taking you longer to finish things that would normally take you no time at all? Does your desk/office happen to be a little messy? Well then look no further for the problem of your unfocused mind than your disorganized space.

We all know that having a cluttered space can lead to a cluttered mind. There are a handful of old sayings regarding this very phenomenon, but it’s not just an old wives tale. A number of scientific studies, including one published by the Princeton University Neuroscience Institute, have found that having a lot of clutter can affect our ability to focus on a single task. According to the study, the clutter causes you to be distracted as the brain tries to focus on too many things at once, making you unable to process information as you would in an organized environment.

1. Declutter Your Thoughts

Aside from physical storage and organization, you can keep your mind organized with a daily To Do list or work binder. I have a separate binder tab for all of my projects and it makes it that much easier to focus on one thing at a time. Before, I had a few different notebooks for different things and it was difficult and distracting to go back and forth. This also keeps all of your important notes and ideas all in one place, instead of scattered across your workspace.

2. Love Your Desk Organizers 

If you have items you don’t like, such as a boring pencil cup or plain file folders, you’re probably less likely to use them like you should. Think about how excited you’ll be to put your paperwork in it’s right folder if the folder is in your favorite pattern? Having desk accessories that organize your space help with functionality, but also enjoyment. I switch out my desk accessories a few times a year and I’m always excited to grab a pencil or put paperclips back where they should go when I have a new set.

3. Get a good storage system

Whether you have a small workstation or an office all to yourself, make sure you have a good storage system to eliminate some of the clutter. If you work in a business with a lot of paper work, get yourself a filing cabinet to keep everything organized and out of sight when you don’t need it. File cabinets can also be used to hold photographs, awards, plants and other things, so they’re not on your desk. They’ll still be in your space, but you won’t be focusing on them instead of work.

How do you keep your office and mind organized?
