In this video I’m going to talk to you about the importance of having a clutter free space. I’m going to teach you how to removing desktop clutter, minimize distraction, and boost productivity.
You and I both know that when you are surrounded by clutter, it’s pretty much impossible to be productive.
This doesn’t just apply to your surroundings, but also to your desktop.
When staring at your computer and your desktop is flooded with files and folders, your brain has to process all of that; which takes glucose. And the lower levels of glucose you have, the harder it is for you to tackle the task at hand.
So let me share with you some really cool ways that you can minimize distraction by decluttering your desktop.
No. 1 Tip to Remove Desktop Clutter
Use an app or program that allows you to “hide” all of your unwanted files by the click of a button. The files are still on your computer; they’re just not cluttering up your desktop.
Here me clearly when I say that this is a temporary solution. My ultimate goal is for you to eventually create a system.

Your computer has a program already built in that allows you to hide desktop clutter. Boom!
