Clean up, get going, hustle harder - your startup fix to start the weekTeam YS
Love’s in the air, and shouldn’t you, erm, show some to the most important thing in your life? Your computer, not your BAE! The second Monday of February is celebrated as the Clean Out Your Computer Day – time and reason enough to look at, organise, and delete the zillions of things you have on your machine. After all, a clean computer is sure to boost productivity and morale and cut down on stress and negativity. What else do you need to get, set, go?
We suggest you set aside an hour in the am or pm to sort through your computer, inside and outside. Look through all the folders, organise the way they work best for you, and remember that the Delete button is the key to order, sanity, and peace of mind. Don’t forget a physical clean up – getting rid of all the dust and crumbs is sure to put you in the mood to hustle harder.
As Albert Einstein said, “Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony. In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”
