Now is about the time you’re seeing a ton of “spring cleaning” hacks and tips popping up around the internet. Don’t get me wrong, nobody loves decluttering and a good deep clean like I do. But this spring, let’s look beyond the basic household spring cleaning and give some TLC to other areas of our life that could benefit from it as well.
Spring clean your career
Make a list of all the projects you currently have on your plate. Then note all the projects you’d like to say goodbye to, and for each one, ask yourself what would you gain from getting rid of it? Would you have more time? More peace of mind? The opportunity to take on a different project you are more excited about?
It’s also the perfect time to reevaluate your current position. Detach from work for a minute to really tune in to your most inner self. Sleep in, take a walk, meditate or spend time with family and spend some time there, within your heart. Decide if you are happy, content, restless or unhappy and then see what you need to do to make a change.
You can also use this season to clean out your workspace and declutter any unnecessary papers or odds and ends.
Spring clean your systems
Take some time to evaluate your planner or calendar system, which can also include any other systems you use for work. Sometimes we have a tendency to stick with something just because it’s convenient, even if it’s not necessarily the best fit. Look at your organizational systems. Are they easy and enjoyable to use? Are they helping you accomplish what you want to accomplish? This is also a great time for you to update your website, resume, social media profiles and get to inbox zero.
