      • Everything that you keep in your space requires some maintenance time.
      • Clutter robs you of energy and creativity that you could be spending on your real work.
      • Think of clutter as the difference between going home at 5:00 and working until 7:00.
      • Misperceptions in Office Organizing
    • Perception
      • All office paper is important to keep.
    • Reality
      • Systems are already in place for managing the organization’s important papers.
      • Be ruthless with any paper that doesn’t already have a filing system.
    • Perception
      • Project-related paperwork is critically important forever.
    • Reality
      • The minute a project is over, most of that paper becomes worthless.
      • Decide whether this piece of paper is a business record or a memento.
    • Perception
      • You don’t have the authority to make decisions about the office’s stuff.
    • Reality
      • Being a member of the team gives you a share in responsibility for the space.
      • Follow your common sense. When in doubt, ask permission for keep/toss decisions.
