It’s confession time: I can no longer see all items on my desktop. There! I said it. I don’t know how others organize their information, but I definitely have a problem. I want to have everything right there, in front of me, so I can find it. But, by doing that, I am actually making matters worse.
I noticed I waste a lot of time looking for the right document, and many times can’t find what I am looking for.
So, what are all those folders you see on my desktop? Here is just a sampling:
• PLR articles
• PDF documents I “saved” to “read later”
• ghostwritten articles I commissioned as far back as 2 years ago, and still haven’t used
• programs I use on a daily basis
• client website backups
• website projects I started and never finished
• a lot more…
Over the next few days, the plan is to re-organize my desktop folders, delete old or outdated files, and find a better way to keep my desktop organized.
I’d love to hear how you keep your computer organized.
