National Clean Your Desk Day’s all about preparing your workspace for the new year and beginning things on the right note. The holiday falls on the second Monday in January. This year, it’s January 13. Remember, a messy desk is an invitation to chaos! A clean desk, on the other hand, helps you focus, be more productive, and generally makes you feel good about your workspace. And when we say clean we don’t just mean physical clutter. That’s correct, your computer desktop counts too. Drag those files into a nice, neat folder!
