A clutter-free space and productivity go hand in hand.

Why? Because a clear space allows you to sink in to your work/projects without being distracted by your environment.

Check out the video below for a quick run-down on clutter, how it affects your productivity, and what to do about it.

    Melissa, great timing with reposting this. I just sent out a story to my readers last week about the importance of keeping a clean workspace not for productivity, but for the message it might communicate about you. A messy workspace can communicate that you aren’t responsible or in control of your workload, and no one wants others to perceive that about them!

    My productivity goes way up when I have a clean workspace, and I notice the positive reaction to my mood when I walk in and see my neat workspace.
