After the seminar, she went straight back to her office and in an afternoon totally organized her office. Remember the file cabinet from the before picture — we moved the filing cabinet to the other side of her desk and placed her stackables on it, giving her desk space. When we sorted through desktop stacks and eliminated unwanted paperwork, we unearthed her Dayplanner which had gone missing!
When you have a place for everything and a working filing system, then you don’t have to place everything in front of you. Your working files are within an arms reach for easy access and your desk is used for what you’re working on that day.
A side note: several months later, she was promoted!
