The first of the year brings a number of key activities: goal setting, vacation or annual appointment planning, employee evaluations, spring cleaning, annual taxes, and so on. What do all of these have in common?
****** ORGANIZATION! ******
Did you know:
- Americans waste 55 minutes a day (roughly 12 days a year) looking for things they own but can’t find - Newsweek
- Office employees spend 1.5 hours a day (6 weeks per year) looking for things - Organized World.com
- The typical executive wastes 150 hours a year (almost an entire month), searching for lost information. For someone earning $50,000 a year, this loss is equivalent to $3,842 annually - Forbes ASAP
Being organized at home, at work, and in our lives is key to a healthier body and mind, better productivity, less stress, stronger employee satisfaction and retention, more money or cost-savings, lots more time at home and with family and friends.
Where do you rate your level of work or business organization? How about your employees and staff? What are your time wasters or not-so-good organizational habits you utilize on a daily basis?
The first of the year is a great time to evaluate this opportunity - don't let it be the task you hate - but the results you love!! If you're not sure of where you stand in these areas, contact me about upcoming Virtual Coaching Sessions for March!
