Whether you work from home or out of the home, it's easier to be efficient when you're organized. Or, so I hear. Right now, I'm in the middle of numerous projects, and if things go on this way much longer....let's just say I'm looking forward to having time to implement these tips from Rice University.
Admittedly, some of them are a little Type A, but many of them are good, especially if you can find a way to style-ize them.
Personally, I'm in favor of anything that makes work easier.
Enjoy your weekend.
