5 ways to spring clean your business and boost your productivity
I love this time of year – warmer weather, flowers in bloom and renewed energy as we emerge from Winter and move into Spring.
I also love a good old spring-clean!
Spring cleaning your business, as well as your home has several benefits.
It will help to streamline everyday operations, get clear and current with your products and services and give your business a breath of fresh air.
Here are 5 ways you can spring-clean your business and boost your productivity:
1. Spring-clean your business planning
It is easy to ‘set it and forget it’ when it comes to business goals and planning.
This is a great time to revisit your goals, review your progress and identify your next steps.
These 5 questions can help:
- What have I achieved so far?
- What are my next priorities?
- Are my goals still relevant? Do I need to set new goals?
- What are my next action steps?
- What support do I need?
Goal setting and action planning training for teams will help you create and achieve your business goals with an action plan to guide and grow your business.
2. Spring-clean your website
It is likely that your business has changed or evolved since last year, so this is a great time to make sure your website is up-to-date and showcasing your current products and services.
Check for these 3 things:
- Does your website easily show your core (or new) products and service and how you help?
- Is it intuitive and easy to navigate around?
- Is it easy for customers to book or buy from you?
Maybe some copy needs updating or new images need adding to reflect your business offering and to speak more directly to your target audience.

3. Spring-clean your email
Keeping your email organised and clutter-free will help free up space in your inbox and to-do list.
Cancel subscriptions and unsubscribe from unwanted newsletters and blogs.
While you are clearing out your inbox, you may want to do some other digital decluttering.
Go through folders and files on your computer and rename, reorganise or remove unnecessary documents will help free up physical, as well as mental space.
My Email management training will help you banish email overwhelm, gain control of your inbox and boost your productivity.
4. Spring-clean your workspace
Decluttering your physical and digital space will create a feeling of order and bring inner calm to your working environment.
As the saying goes, “A tidy desk is a tidy mind.”
So, tidy your desk, clean your computer screen and remove unwanted bits of paper and receipts from your desk and drawers.
File paperwork into folders or an in-tray.
Remove objects from your line of sight to declutter your workspace, avoid distractions and free your mind to concentrate on what is really important.
Add some plants or fresh spring flowers to your desk or workspace for a spring boost.
5. Spring-clean your mindset
Mindset is key to productivity.
As Henry Ford’s saying goes “Whether you think you can or think you can’t – you’re right.”
Turn your niggles of self-doubt into ‘I can’ affirmations.
Let go of habits that are not serving you.
Think about where you are spending time within your business.
Do these areas energise you or drain you? Do they bring you closer to your goals?
Spring cleaning your business will help you focus on the things that matter, helping you to be more organised, energised and productive and spring your business into action!
