The last week of every year is a great time to clean your business house. How many things do you have sitting around that you haven’t used in years. How many obligations on your calendar have minimal value to you? Get rid of all this stuff! Do something NOW to free yourself up for a simpler, more profitable 2012. Here’s how.
5 Ways to Clean Your Business House
1. Get rid of items that you don’t refer to or use.
If you haven’t used something in three years, get rid of it. Even if you found you needed one of these old items, the content would be out of date anyway, right?
2. End subscriptions.
Eliminate email and mailed subscriptions that you never read.
3. Physically clean your office.
Renew your environment and create a fresh physical and mental start to the year.
4. Eliminate organizations that don’t provide a huge ROI on your time and effort.
Resign from boards, associations, and other groups that you’ve outgrown.
5. Maintain your clean house throughout the year.
Don’t stockpile stuff in that corner of your desk. Either act on it, file it, or toss it.
