I know it sounds tacky, but putting labels on your drawers, folders and storage areas is a great idea.

Rearrange Your Space

Moving your desk around to the right position in the room can create a lot more space and completely change the energy to a positive one that allows you to focus on work. Pick furniture that is visually appealing and makes you feel like a pro. There is nothing wrong with adding a small sofa or comfortable chair to your office. Having a comfortable place to read over reports, or write important emails is priceless. This is extremely important if you spend a good amount of time in front of your desk.
Make sure that your room has ample lighting. This may not seem like a big deal, but studies have shown that certain lighting can either increase or decrease your productivity.
If you spend a good amount of time in front of your computer, you might want to consider getting a larger screen or even a wall mounted television.
