Oh what a tiring and refreshing mix that can be.
I focused on a few key areas:
- Cleaning off the desk
- Recycling / shredding 6 month old project notes
- Emptying all drawers, putting back in the things I’ve used in the last month
- Sorting the 4 boxes that came over to the new SpinWeb office in January 2012. Surprisingly I needed 1/8 of it to stay. The rest will be donated, trashed, or put into the general office cord fund (an eclectic mix of USB dongles)
If you have considered a purge or minimalist clean up, I recommend checking out “The Joy of Less” for some much needed attitude helpers in the first few chapters.
