The 30-Second Secret
This is one of those strategies that you must get if you want to have a Perfect Workday. It is hands-down, the best, simplest, most effective organization strategy I have ever seen.
Here it is: Don’t walk out of your house in the morning and don’t walk away from your desk at lunch and at the end of the day without taking 30 seconds to straighten up a couple of things and put some things away up.
You don’t have to put everything up, just straighten up a little bit up—30 seconds, that’s all I’m asking.
The cumulative effect of this thing is magical. 30 seconds, 30 seconds, 30 seconds, 30 seconds. After awhile you tend to be relatively organized. And if you keep doing this, it will keep you organized.
Don’t let the simplicity of this strategy cause its effectiveness to slip by you. Try it. You’ll find it to be one of the best ideas you can use.
