In mid-March, lives changed drastically with the onset of Covid-19. Businesses shut their doors, offices required employees to work from home, and thousands were laid off or furloughed. This led to a previously coveted practice: working remotely from a home office. But without a designated work space, productivity remains low. Learn how to organize a home office for productivity.

She’s based in Houston, Texas, but can often be found on an airplane en route to exploring new places or climbing mountains. She is the Membership Director on the Houston Chapter of the National Association of Productivity and Professionals (NAPO) Board of Directors.

Her hope is that by decluttering the physical, the mental, spiritual, and emotional clutter disappears as well.
I went from a productive, let’s get stuff done, individual to an individual who chose to squander 24 hours every day.
Often, when I first discuss a plan with a new client, their main goal is to be able to park their vehicle inside (as well as discard all the clutter). Great, let’s do that. The number one issue is, of course, all the stuff that’s on the ground. So, what’s to be done? Put hands on every item as you decide to donate, trash/recycle, return/gift, or keep. Then utilize the vertical space.
Let’s be blunt: when you pass, you will no longer worry about what happens to your belongings, or your body, or anything in your life, but those you leave behind will be affected by your passing. It’s your responsibility to make it a smooth transition for them.
