Day 10 – Your Pick – Monday 20th February
Share your challenge with us all?
So now the challenge is complete use the inspiration you have gained over these last 10 days to keep you motivated.
Diarise days in your week to complete your own challenges.
Here are some great maintenance tips to consider to help you keep things on track!
“Don’t put it down put it away.”
Try not to double handle items that need putting away.
‘If you see it sort it’, ‘If you think it do it’ – or note it in your diary or to do list.
Use these Four principles for everything that comes into your hands,
ACTION it – Complete it, fill it in, finish it
FORWARD it – pass it on to the appropriate person, mail box, teacher, in an envelope in your handbag or briefcase. Consider putting items in your car you need for the next day, so you don’t forget to take them with you.
FILE it – put it away (not on a pile for later)
Consider that approx. 80% of paper items we file away never get referred to again.
BEFORE YOU FILE IT OR PUT IT AWAY THINK “DO I REALLY NEED TO KEEP THIS”!!!
BIN it – stick it in the trash, sell it or donate it.
Some other tips:
· Remove inbox trays from your desk
· Create an imaginary ‘no dumping’ zone for all your horizontal spaces
· Empty your mail over a rubbish/recycle bin – disposing of items immediately.
· Reduce paperwork coming into your home – go paperless for your bills.
You can still view them online and only print out if required.
· Utilise snippets of time – such as waiting for the kettle to boil – to clean out your handbag, purse or school bags, stack the dishwasher etc
Clear the decks at the end of each day!
Diarise tasks to complete each day, rather than saving them up to complete on the weekend.
