In The News...
Don't let the 'Ghost of Christmas Past' talk you into keeping those things in your life that no longer serve its purpose.  Lori's latest Dayton Daily News article helps us work through some of the emotions involved in letting go.  
Slow Down and Organize ...
Usually during the Holidays, things around the office start to slow down.  More people are on vacation, you don't have as many meetings, and customer engagement comes to a stand still.  
Instead of wondering what you will do next, it is the perfect time to take care of yourself and organize your office.  Some of the areas you could work on are:
  • Clean off your desk and clean out cluttered drawers.  Only keep those things that you use on a regular basis.  
  • Purge and organize files by throwing away papers that are no longer needed, and move outdated files to records retention storage instead of keeping them in your office.  
  • Clean common areas shared by all staff; such as the kitchen, copy room, lobby, etc.  Be honest.  When was the last time the refrigerator was cleaned out?  
  • Clean and organize records retention storage space. 
Holiday Hints...
After the holidays this year, why not organized your decorations instead of throwing them haphazardly into a box to untangle next year.  Some ideas are:
  • Wrap lights or garland around pieces of cardboard so they don't tangle.  
  • Store beaded garland in old tennis ball containers or water bottles.
  • Hang wreaths on coat hangers and cover with garbage bags.
  • Store Christmas ornaments in egg cartons.
