2015 is here and it’s time to get set for all the New Year has to offer. To ensure you are organised and perfectly equipped to achieve your goals for your work life, there are several steps you should take before the tasks starts piling up.
1. Clean up your workspace
You can’t expect to get much done if your office or workspace looks like a cyclone has passed through it! If your desk is a nightmare, finding paperwork you need is a lengthier task and it’s just generally more unpleasant to do your work there.
Before you get stuck into your work this year, do a massive clean-up of your desk. Throw away old documents, get rid of any rubbish lying around, invest in some storage for your office necessities – do anything you need to get your desk looking clear and clean. On many occasions, less is more, so keep as little as possible on your desk.
2. Use a calendar
Calendars are a great way to keep track of important dates. Displaying them right next to your desk or somewhere you look at every day will ensure you never miss an important event or meeting. What’s more, you can download beautiful calendars online (some even for free!). Here are some great printable calendars we have found for you.

3. Have a marketing plan
As the saying goes, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Having a marketing plan in place for the year is critical as it allows you to outline exactly what you want to achieve and to focus on what’s important. It also enables you to track your progress and adjust your marketing efforts based on this.
