Smart Ways to Clear Clutter and Streamline Your Life
Follow the Five-Minute Rule
No one can really save time, since we all get the same amount every day. However, I have found a way to reduce clutter on my desk at work. I call
it the five-minute rule. If I can get it done in five minutes or less, I tend to take care of it then rather than place it
in my in-basket to do later. This includes mailing that letter, marking a date, opening a room for someone, answering questions,
filing one piece of paper, etc. By getting rid of the little things immediately, I can focus on the bigger projects, and the
minute details of my job don't bog me down.
