PROCRASTINATION

Procrastination prevents success by keeping us busy with nonessential actions.

CAN'T SAY NO?

Rather than saying yes to a request, tell the people you will check your schedule and get back to them. Avoid impulse acquiescence like you would avoid impulse buying. Thinking before committing usually results in better decisions.

COLORED FORMS

Have a different color for each form and be consistent so everyone can quickly identify them.

LIMIT YOUR COMMITMENTS

Careful planning can avoid overload that results from taking on too many commitments. Our total commitments should be slightly below our capacity.

CLUTTER DEFINED

Clutter, as anything is excess for you - whatever doesn't serve you, yet takes up space in your world.

 

THE POWER OF FOCUS

The discipline to prioritize and the ability to work toward a stated goal are essential to a leader's success.

STRESS RELIEVER

Humour is to life what shock absorbers are to automobiles.

GROWTH OF PAPERWORK

Paperwork increased from 1.3 trillion documents per year in 1990 to 4 trillion documents in 1995.


IMPORTANCE OF PUNCTUALITY

Only 2% of people are punctual all the time and that these people are respected and recognized by everyone.

 

PROOFREAD YOUR E-MAIL

It's easier to miss mistakes on a screen than it is on a typed page so be sure to read your messages before sending them.

DON'T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF

One way to get high blood pressure is to go mountain climbing over mole hills.

DON"T FORGET THOSE ATTACHMENTS

If you sometimes send e-mail without the attachment, get in the habit of attaching the file before you write the message. Make it the first thing you do and you'll never waste time having to send a second e-mail.

FOCUS ON PRIORITIES

The reason most major goals are not achieved is that we spend our time doing second things first.

SAYING NO

You separate the request from the person. It may be difficult to say "no" to someone you love, respect or fear, but keep in mind you are rejecting the request, not the person.

 

LEAVE TIME FOR YOURSELF

Saying NO can be the ultimate self-care.

POSITIVE ATTITUDE

Nothing erases unpleasant thoughts more effectively than concentration on pleasant ones.

VALUE OF TIME

Nothing is worth more than this day.

BE IN THE PRESENT

As you walk, eat and travel, be where you are. Otherwise you will miss your life.
