Managing Your Stuff

Ever think to yourself, I don’t have the time for managing my time? Of course, we all have! How do manage all your stuff? How do you decide what to focus on each day?

1. Collect: Everything that is incomplete that you have to do.

2. Process: What is it you have to do? Is it actionable or not? 

3. Organize: If it is a non-actionable item then either toss it, use a tickler system as a reminder, or store it as a reference item. If it is an action item ask yourself what the next action step is; second, what is the outcome or result are you committed to?
