Getting Organized: Some Simple Efficiency Changes At Work


Organize your workspace for healthy computing, Prioritize tasks which are important, urgent, both or neither, and energize yourself by getting plenty of rest, eating and drinking all of the right things and exercising regularly. Plenty of mini breaks, exercise on and off the PC, and staying focused will contribute to a sense of continual well-being

Take some time to block distractions and dangers. Install a firewall to your computer, or have one installed to make yourself invisible to hackers and intruders. Add mail-filtering software to cut down on SPAM.

Use an online software memo pad
. Download freeware that'll let you do a pop up or 'Post-It' note on your screen. You may find the software will also retain your notes in one folder. Whenever you remember something that needs to be done, the very best thing to do is write it down. Then, just as you need to recall it, it will be there for you in an instant

Remove clutter. Cleaning gives order and purpose to your life, even if you only do a bit at a time. Tidy your desk, clean out, store or remove dead or surplus information from your PC. Get and regularly run software that removes dead links, duplicate files and empty folders. Most of this can be scheduled to run automatically or when you aren't there. Your computer will work better too!

Use timers and alarms. Take advantage of alarm clocks and timers throughout your day to stay organized at your work. Have to have a report ready by noon? Set your pop up PC alarm clock as a memory jogger to remind you. Want to leave for an anniversary meal by 8 p.m.? Set your offline timer to beep a few minutes before it is time to get ready.

With a few simple changes, your work life can be less hectic and much more productive.
