Clean It Up! Being Productive in The Office Starts With Cleaning and Organization

Okay, you can’t hire a Terry Tate to bring up productivity in your office, but you can hire a Cleaning & Organizing Service to bring efficiency and purpose to each area of your business.

What’s your biggest obstacle to productivity at work? For some people it’s the constant dings of smart phone notifications and emails; for others it’s distracting interruptions from co-workers. But for a lot of employees, the one thing that stands in the way of efficiency is simply not being able quickly find what they need to complete a task.

Being disorganized costs you time and money, people can spend hours looking for things in their office and on their computer, that they could be spending on work that’s making money for the business. Here are 10 Productivity Tips you can use at your office:

How To Create a Home That is BEING

French Farmhouse 6

Our homes are mirrors of ourselves. They reflect our importance, our character, or indecision, our spirit and our desires. Our homes tell a story about how we feel about ourselves and the world around us. A home is more than just a place to lay your head and seek comfort from the elements. Your home IS A BEING, it’s the essential nature of how we combine our spirit and soul to attract energy or drive away energy.

Everything is Energy – if your home is full of clutter it is driving away good energy. Your home is not separate from you, it is an evolving Being of you, and the home members. Learning to bond with your living spaces can contribute to creating a life that is balanced and in harmony with the positive energy of all that surrounds you.

Here is the process I have used for the last 20 years to help clients sort through their clutter and bring back the positive energy into their space, and find the Being of the home. As you are going through each zone (areas) of the home – Pick up each object, make a decision of Trash, Keep or Recycle box. There are going to be items that will need to be transported to others zones, they need to be placed inside the Transit box. At the end of sorting in that zone, take the transit box and relocate the items to the decided zones. If any of these areas are already full because you haven’t cleared the clutter yet – leave the items in the Transit box until you complete those zones.

Decide now that everything that takes up the space in your home has to have a valid purpose of Being there. Ask yourself “Does it pass the Clutter-Test?”

The Clutter-Test

Does it lift my energy when I think about it or look at it?

Recognizing whether you feel energized or not is the most reliable part of the clutter test. Your mind will invent all kinds of excuses so that you get to hang on to the stuff, but your body knows the truth and never lies. Trust the feeling in your body!

Do I absolutely love it?

If so, does it inspire me or is it just nice? Do I already have enough of this type of item for my needs? Does it have sad association in my life?

Is it genuinely useful?

If so, when did I actually last use it? (I have a one year rule) When will I realistically use it again?

Is It Safe To Let Go

Repeat to yourself as you sort through your items, “It’s safe to let go“. Clearing clutter is about letting go and trusting the process of life to bring you what you need when you need it. Anything you are keeping for those “just in case” moments, you are keeping out of fear. If you have a lot of clutter, you may need to go through this process several times before you feel ready to ‘let go’ of some things.

In the past, I have had a few clients wanting this process to go quickly – having a hard time making decisions of letting go and getting frustrated with themselves. They would then keep canceling our organizing sessions making it even harder for when we would have to restart the sorting process. I finally would convince them that working in a positive – small – forward motion worked better than consistently restarting the process. I would suggest 2 Organizing Sessions / Per Month for a year. They would be surprised by the compounding effect of getting rid of the clutter at each session, most of the time it would take less than a year to clear clutter from their home.

At the end of the clutter-clearing process, not only will you be able to breathe easier, but your home will have a new life and a new BEING.

What is your clutter costing you?

The Cost of Clutter

There is nothing wrong with having an affection for clutter, but when clutter gets out of control and becomes an irritation rather than a source of comfort – its time to ask if it is costing you valuable energy and the opportunity to live a comfortable life.

Here are the Costs

  1. Monetary – buying stuff you don’t need
  2. Physical – moving all your stuff from one area to another
  3. Mental – worry and stress about your stuff

Start Small

Make a decision to have one area in your home that you are NOT going to allow stuff to accumulate. Several years ago I worked with a hoarder, this was his first Homework Assignment, he had to decide where he was going to designate a NO CLUTTER ZONE. He decided to have the area next to his stove, which was an area that was not cluttered. This client made a decision long ago not to clutter that area up with stuff because of his love of cooking. If you live in a home with others, make sure they know where the ‘No Clutter Zone’ is located.

The Simple Answer

Why does one spot accumulate ‘stuff’ while another doesn’t? There are 3 answers.

  • You allow it
  • You make the decision
  • You make a conscious decision

Just like my former client, he made a conscious decision to not allow his ‘stuff’ to flow into a place where he loved to create. Realize when you make ‘That Decision’ your stuff will have to go somewhere. Spend some time creating some easy, natural-to-use systems to place your stuff or get rid of it – if everything has its own place your home or office will flow more efficiently and effectively.
