My philosophy regarding true organization & productivity is that control over space, time, and information must exist.
I call it the Trifecta for Productivity.
Getting organized and increasing productivity is about much more than a pretty space and a busy schedule. A space can look organized from the exterior, yet important information, paperwork, and materials can be very hard to find. A professional can look – and feel – very busy, yet his or her activities may not be producing real results or measurable progress. Looks can be very deceiving.
My philosophy regarding true organization & productivity is that control over space, time, and information must exist. I call it the Trifecta for Productivity. An organized space must function for all who work within the environment, and must accommodate for the ebb and flow of daily life. A productive company must have documented systems, policies, and procedures that guide each team member’s decisions, actions, priorities and goals. An individual’s calendar must be well-managed, proactively filled, and intentionally aligned with one’s goals and vision.
To create a productive and organized environment, I often address the physical space first; but my work does not end there. When all three pillars of productivity (space, time, information) are assessed and improved upon, significant & lasting change and growth occurs. Organizing is not an event; organization is a value, a lifestyle, a decision and a commitment. Once adopted by a business and its leaders, it can can become a game-changer in determining whether the business will simply survive or how well the business can thrive.
