Spring is here (finally) and it's time to clean up. Clean up your house, finances, personal life, career, car, and office! This post is about cleaning up your office.
1. Clear the Clutter from your Desk. File it - Scan it - or Shred it, but get all of those papers off of your desk. This creates space for you to work and helps you to prioritize. The only papers on your desk should be "same day" items.
2. Update your Contacts. Upload the information from the business cards you have received into your electronic contact list, back up this list, and get rid of the physical cards.
Pro Tip: Send follow up emails and reconnect as you work through the cards.
