commercial propertyYou do all of your work at your commercial property. As many do at the start of a New Year, you have made a resolution to be more productive and efficient at work. The best way for you to complete your job duties is by starting with a clean work area. At Menlo Commercial Real Estate, we know the importance of a tidy work space. And we want to give you a few pointers of how to organize your desk, your office, and your commercial property in honor of National Clean Off Your Desk Day this coming Monday, January 11.

Steps to Organizing Your Work Area

Of course, the fastest way to clean off your desk in a hurry is by just clearing everything off your desk and into a drawer or storage bin that you keep nearby. Quick and easy, right? Because you may think you are going to need those items at some point, you’re not necessarily ready to be rid of them for good. But, by following this approach, all you are really doing is saving your mess for later and making space for more junk. You’re not solving the problem of clutter at all. As an alternative to this method, we suggest that you take a little bit of time and get rid of what you really don’t need once and for all. You can follow these easy steps to get the job done:

  • Throw things away – go through your office at your commercial property from top to bottom and get rid of everything that is non-essential or that you haven’t used in a while. This includes everything from papers and office supplies to furniture and knick-knacks.
  • Find a place for everything you are keeping and put it there.
  • Get rid of or store away anything on your desk that you don’t use daily.
  • Organize what is left on your working space with desk organizing bins and holders.

These are all simple tasks that you can do in one day. The time you spend will certainly help you be more productive as you move forward. If, however, you realize that you still need more room in your office space to effectively get the job done, Menlo Commercial Real Estate is here to help you find the perfect new commercial property.
