These past two weeks, I have been doing a lot of folder organization in my computer. Much as in life and in our physical spaces, we tend to clutter our computers. We are working on projects one after another and simply tend to "dump" files, always thinking: once this project is done, I will archive it. Well, do you?
“People with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine.”
― Brian Tracy
I thought I I had learned my lesson when I went through my decluttering phase, still in the States, but about a month ago, as I was looking through my computer files, I was in shock as how messy and unorganized they are. What I first decided to do was to create a written plan on how I wanted the files to be organized. So, I have been able to take some time and organize them in a way that makes sense to me and my co-workers.
What amazed me is that suddenly I started to sleep better, I started feeling less overwhelmed each time I would work on projects. Also, my goals and projects became clearer and easier to work on.
When was the last time you checked all the files on your computer? How often do you de-clutter your computer? How does that make you feel?
