Holidays are officially over and on Monday, the Fall semester starts. It's time to get ready for upcoming battles. Sacrifice your Sunday afternoon nap and try to get ahead.
Workspace: get rid of the holiday clutter
I cleared out all my drawers and evaluated the content. All that pens that dried during the summer, paper clutter and tangled cables must go. It's a good idea to start putting together a shopping list for office supplies when you realize something is missing.
Also, set up some space for new documents. On my Mac, I created new folders for all notes, PDFs and other files that would be created in upcoming months. There would be no electronic clutter at the end of the first week.
