Decluttering Your Desktop
It really is October!
As I am writing this month’s newsletter, it is 21C outside–unbelievable weather for mid-October! We know it isn’t going to last much longer, so make sure you enjoy these last warm fall days.
DECLUTTERING YOUR DESKTOP
Did you know that October 17 was “Clean Your Virtual Desktop Day?” I’m not sure who designates these particular days, but it started the wheels turning. I recently participated in a webinar–a portion of which covered this topic.
When people talk about decluttering, most often they mention the physical items that are staring them in the face. Many people don’t do something about it until push comes to shove.
Have you ever received a message that you need to remove emails from your mailbox so that you don’t lose any of them? Often panic sets in as your frustration level starts to rise, and you think “Oh no! Now I have something else to worry about in addition to everything else that’s on my plate.”
Before this happens, set aside some time on a regular basis to clean up your email or desktop–before you feel the universe is conspiring against you to make your life more difficult. Linda Chu, an organizing colleague, shared the timely article De-clutter your desktop. In a related article, Matt Madeiro also shares some great tips in Downsize Your Digital Life.
So get started and turn over another leaf!
Until next month,
