Poor organization and professional success go together about as well as oil and water. A cluttered space can be an anxiety-inducing space. Lots of time can is wasted poring through poorly-organized paperwork. It can cause problems with clients and may even lead to lost business. Getting an inbox where you place all things you need to get done, such as bills that need to be paid and assignments that need to be completed.
