This might seem like a funny topic to talk about, but it is the thinking behind tidying and simplifying things, rather than just the action.
I love it when you hear someone who has a desk that is out of control say, “I know where everything is”. No, they don’t!
The fact is, that if you cannot organize yourself and your work environment, then the odds are that your life runs a similar way.
I absolutely love that feeling of cleaning up and throwing out and organizing. It affects our frame of mind and just simply makes us more efficient.
One of the fun things about getting organized is what you find within your mess that you forgot you even had – those little surprises. They probably still need to be thrown out, but hey, they add a little entertainment to the process.
Don’t believe the hype of the Messaholic! They are simply not as effective as they could be.
There is no way that you can be as productive or efficient when things around you are in turmoil.
If you look like a mess, then the odds are that you are also seen that way by others.
So, try it out, take one hour out of your day and clean up your environment – you might be surprised how empowering it is.
(By the way, check your vehicle also).
Des Penny has just returned from Bali where he had the privilege of donating $6K to the orphanage for major projects they had. These proceeds have come from our Bali Conference registrations and from Proteus.
We are thrilled to be able to announce the launch of our new in-house program – ‘The Complete Leader.’ This program has taken four essential skills that are required to be successful in leadership and over two days, participants will not only learn theory but are given the opportunity to practice the skills and embed them into their lives.

What people are saying about Leadership Speak program:
“Incredible program. So practical. I felt myself improve hugely as a presenter over the 2 days. It was challenging and confronting but still enjoyable.”
Roxanne Ewing - Cromwell Property Group
“The Leadership Speak program demonstrated to me the power of first impressions, body language and framing messages to engage and give clarity around your objective. But more, it challenged me to put it into practice, time and time again, and the feedback from the presenters and my program colleagues was invaluable.”
Narelle Peach - University Of Southern Queensland
“One of the best professional development courses I have attended. Even though I find speaking in public extremely challenging, the course gave me tools & information I can use to craft exceptional presentations.”
Cathy Spanton - Murray Mallee General Practice Network
