Strategy #5: Organize
Working in an unorganized environment can lead to havoc. It can lead to a big deflation in motivation and harbor nasty procrastination habits. Keeping an organized workspace will help you overcome difficult issues with ease, because your environment will not be contributing to the chaos.
Develop the habit of filing papers in a defined area… like a file cabinet. Organize or eliminate all other items that are cluttering your workspace. Make it a point to tidy up your workspace before you head out each evening. A visually pleasing office will help you keep your composure even in a difficult situation.
