How to: Optimize Your Office Life #ad
According to NYC-based professional organizer Lisa Zaslow, as cited by CNN Money online, the average working Joe or Jane loses about an hour of each day just to disorganization. That means looking for stuff! If you are like me, you probably think this seems like a shamefully long period of time not be getting important things done in a busy day. Of course, it’s normal to get off track every now and again, particularly if you have a healthy work-life balance and whole lot things to do. The key is to work smarter, not harder. Boise Paper products can be an integral part of an effective office solution line-up as well. Work seems less of a grind when things are organized. You’re happier, the boss is happier, and the whole system chugs along like a well-oiled machine.
Always put the things you use frequently back in the same place. It sounds simple, but it can save you at least a few minutes every day. In my experience, having everything exactly where it should be forces me to hunker down and focus rather than get sidetracked as soon as the work day begins. When supplies and other reference materials are with arm’s reach, productivity increases because of fewer interruptions. Keep that office printer well stocked with a bright quality stock of paper too, such as Boise®’s X-9® Multi-use Copy paper. This premium product comes with a 99.99% jam-free performance guarantee. Just think of the time you’ll save when you don’t have to fight with that imposing office copier every hour of the day.
To avoid teetering stacks of papers in that “In” box, try organizing documents into vertical file folders. Aesthetically, this really eliminates any look of clutter on a desk surface. Plus, this storage method prevents any certain folder or document from getting buried under others. No more combing through piles of folders and loose sheets for one single file. Color code those folders, keep the rack in the corner of your desk, and eliminate a significant amount of stress related to your workload.
Finally, one last suggestion related to workplace organization and success: keep a personal stash of premium Boise Paper on hand for the creation of your most important presentations and documents. Attention to detail is crucial, even down to the superior quality of paper you hand someone. Choose paper with a purpose and present your ideas with the utmost professionalism and confidence. You’ll be able to print the best looking proposal in the office with just a moment’s notice when you keep a package of Boise Polaris® handy for the printer feed. What will you do with the time saved here? Why, spend more of the day looking good in front of the head honchos, of course!
