I never have time to organize my desk. What can I do in 10 minutes at the end of each day to contain the chaos?

Put away all your pens and pencils, and do a quick sweep of your desk for items to throw away (old reports, coffee cups, etc). Put files on your computer desktop into the right folders. Then, prep yourself for the next day by arranging your papers from left to right, with the most important items to the left, so you’ll be ready to work first thing.
