I have just started reading the book Organize your Business - Organize your Life by Rachael Doyle yesterday night. In the first chapter, Organize Your Desk she shared some very good pointers on how to keep your desk clean and organized to increase productivity.
At the basic, divide your desk into three zones.
Zone A: Desk area within reach of your arm while sitting in your chair.
Zone B: Area that require you to roll your chair a few feet away from the desk.
Zone C: Area where you have to get up out of your chair and walk to get something.
Make conscious decisions about which item goes to which zone.
I keep my workspace (reasonably) clean. And this idea of 'Zoning' the area makes lot of sense to me. How about you?
Q-1: If you were to follow this idea of 'Zoning', what will you keep in each Zone?
Q-2: What do you guys follow when organizing and keeping your desk clean?
