Have a Trash Can
If you have to get up from your desk to throw away the trash, then it is too far away. Make sure that you can easily reach the trash from your chair and throw the trash.
Minimize Paper from coming
Stop the incoming paper, and at least minimize it to the extent possible. Eliminate unnecessary subscriptions, reduce the number of reports and memos. If you don’t need something in hard copy, then stop coming to the table.
Remove Unnecessary Clutter
