Weather you work from home or in an office, your work desk is a place where you spend your maximum time at work and you would never want a place so important to be inefficient. If you have all the necessary things near or around you while you are on your work desk, it reduces the time that you will waste looking for them, and we all know what happens when we search for a thing while we are panicked. To avoid such situations let’s take some time and organize our work desk to be a better place and make our day at work easier.

Everybody’s needs about work desk may differ on basis of the size of your desk, the type of your work, your personal preferences, etc. Even then just have a look at these few things that might help you with a better n efficient work desk. These are very basic things, and the worst part is, we forget these sometimes, and we all know what happens when we forget the basics; embarrassment. So let’s go through but these essentials and see if it helps you.

  • Notebook/notepad.

How many times has this happened to you tgat you had to take down sone notes and found nothing to write on; or how many times have you noted down something in sone random place and completely forgot about it. If this has happened to you, you must have a notepad/ notebook on your desk so that you don’t panic the next tine you need to write down something and also never loose your important notes.

  • Pen stand.

As with the notepad, finding pen can also be a task sometimes, funny right? but trust me, it happens. Having a penstand on the desk saves you the time of searching one and also allows you to offer when somebody else needs it.

  • Tissues

You had a snack on your desk/ some coffee spilled and client is sitting in front of you or maybe you are on some urgent task, are you going back to go searching for things to clean the mess? So always have some tissues nearby, they might not be a daily necessities, but at times they can be real saviors.

  • Mini dustbin.

Cleaned up the desk, now do u want to collect the trash at your desk, if course not, so have a mini dustbin near you. It helps to discard used paper n old notes from time to time.

  • Stationary and file cabinet.

We all live to have a clear desk, don’t we? Having drawers for stationary stuff and file cabinets really helps with that. That way we can have them on the desk only when we need it, and otherwise the desk will be clear. If you don’t have a cabinet/drawer make sure you arrange those well on your desk itself, but in a way that it does not creat an obstruction in your work.

  • Charger.

This technology has blessed us with so many things, but with that comes maintenance too. Be it your laptop or phone, make sure you have a charger at your work desk. 

  • Clock

Time!! We all need to keep up with it, so we all need to keep a watch on it. We all have time displayed on our phones, but looking at the phone every now-n-then can be distracting, so it’s always better to have a clock in front of you 

  • Picture of you with your loved ones.

Last but not the least, it is something different from the rest, but is also very helpful, maybe not a necessity, but definitely a good thing to have around. Seeing yourself with your loved ones will pump up positivity in you and you will be reminded of the reasons why you are working, thus keeping you motivated. So trust me, this is an essential.
