Ready for a Clear Out?

There’s a Japanese custom called oosooji – “the big clean”. Traditionally it happens at New Year, when all the employees come in ready to scrub and polish, clear through filing cabinets and bookshelves and ditch all the old documents and bits of junk that accumulate through the year.

Office before tidying upIf you’re wondering what this has to do with you, take a look at your desk
and around your office.

How long is it since you had a clear out?

Can you find what you need in less than a minute (if you can, you’re in the minority), or do you have to rummage through a stack of files and unopened mail, or hundreds of emails in your Sent box to put your hands on it?

Apparently office workers in the UK waste several days each year just looking for things….. time to make sure you’re not one of them!
