I can't find my...... Sound familiar? Well, it will be difficult to find things when you are disorgnized. Working out of your home is hard enough. Mixing business into your personal home space is always a challenge and can mess up your sleep, peace factor and often disturb others who are just trying to live and rest in the home space. Working out of your home also has many great benefits such as saving time, gas and money. So how do you make it work?
Being organized and having easy access to information, paperwork, emails and software programs often is the key to feeling comfortable, calm and cozy in your home office space.
A great filing system that is individualized to your way of thinking, in order to access information quickly and efficiently is a major factor. Also being able to access files, emails and information from your computer is key. No one wants to spend more time than necessary looking for items you know you have since overspending time, to find already created and accessed information, could lead to frustration, lower confidence in abilities and a futility that can disturb not only you but those inhabiting the area as a living space. Let's face it work can be fun, but often it is just work grudgery, and when you become intolerant of your own work habits those around you feel it too.
So how do you become more organized? It is not a skill we generally learn from parents and or teachers necessarily. It doesn't just come by osmosis. It is usually learned and modeled and or we can read books or articles on getting more organized, but sometimes just having some help or someone to sit by your side can be the most effective method of getting organized quickly and easily.
Having a professional organizer come in to clean up computer files and paper files is usually the best place to start if you are fumbling for a system that will create access ease. Next cleaning up email chaos is a great second place to start, to have some relief in your home office. Usually a person with IT/Computer Science background who also has administrative and training skills makes for the perfect organizer for a home office project. I-Deal-Lifestyle matches your needs and wants to a Professional Organizer who has a skill set to match your project. Different organizers have different skill sets. An organizer great with kitchens, pantries and closets with no IT background is probably not a great fit for home offices. Mind you they can help you create a filing system and clean out cabinets, but that is not going to really give you what you are really requiring.
