It's Friday and the weekend is finally here. To keep your work life from cluttering up your weekend, tidy up your desk right now. Organizing your work, before leaving the office for two days, will not only help clear your mind from work worries and make room for weekend fun, but it will give you a jump start on Monday morning, too.
Take a little time right now to stack your papers into tidy piles. Organize them while you are at it, too. Clean around your keyboard with some compressed air. Put all your pens in a cup. Throw away any little bits of refuse and wipe down your desk — experts claim that around 10 million bacteria make their home on your desk. Not all bacteria is dangerous, but things could get nasty if you eat at your desk.
I truly believe leaving a tidy desk behind me at the office gives me peace of mind over the weekend. I'm going to start stacking my papers right now. How about you?
