Getting Organized Can Start Now

Getting Organized - Day 43

I'm always on the lookout for ways to become better organized or remind myself of ways to save some time. We all could use more time for the things we really enjoy.

I happened upon these seven productivity tips by Elliott Kosmicki. (For more, see his GoodPlum blog.)

A couple of Elliott's suggestions stood out for me, including the reminder to look at each e-mail only once -- and do something with it, even if that means hitting "delete."

And I hadn't ever considered #7 - Reflection, then refraction:

Most people are able to reflect on the past week and think about the good and bad… but how we refract that (alter slightly) into change for the next week is important as well. During your weekly review, don’t spend too much time fretting over what you could have done differently - slingshot those thoughts into what you are able to change for the week ahead.

That said, I'm looking forward to Monday ...
