First let me reiterate a quote from Peter Walsh, “physical clutter equals mental clutter.” When your eyes and mind are being bombarded with visual clutter it clouds your mind and judgment. It may make you feel uneasy and unable to focus. So I’m going to let you in on some simple tips to get you started organizing your office and workday!

1.   Reduce the visual clutter. Grab a trash bag and a box. Anything that is obviously garbage or recycling goes in either the bag or box.
