By: David Sheppard, News Editor – 9 April 2017The last time I checked, the amount of paperwork I had on my desk was already staggering, and I wasn’t even sure if I could do without it.
I had just been given a new computer, and while I had no idea how to use it yet, I knew I wanted to get it up and running and make some improvements.
So I set out to make some small changes to the way I work, in the hope that they would help me reduce the amount I have to put into the office and get out of the house.
In the end, the changes I made worked.
I stopped putting a ton of paperwork on my desktop, which meant I could focus on the important stuff, like filing my taxes.
My office space is now cleaner, and my time spent in front of a computer is more productive, too.
I now find it easier to get my tasks done.
I also learnt a few new things.
For example, I’m more likely to check email.
I’ve also found that I have less of an urge to keep up-to-date on everything going on in the world.
And the fact that I’m not worried about having all my documents in one place now has allowed me to get things done in a way that I previously would have thought impossible.
