10 Minute Tidy Office Tip 13: Phone, Pens, and Message Book Within Reach

by shannon on November 16, 2014

It is so frustrating when you get an important business call and you can’t find what you need to write on. To make your life easier, and sound more professional on the phone, always keep pens and paper near your office phone. If you use a cordless or mobile phone, have the pens and paper near the base station or charger. If you tend to use lots of sticky notes for your phone messages, which then get lost, a phone message book with duplicate pages offers a simple solution for having all phone messages in one place.

When locating the phone, pens, and message book on your desk, consider which hand you answer the phone with and which hand you write with, so that each item is within easy reach.
I am often out and about when I get my business voice-mail messages, so I also carry a small notebook and pen in my purse. That way, when I am out of my office, all of my messages get written down in one place.
