Does it seem the harder you work, the behinder you get? Do you have multiple calendars and to-do lists scattered around the office and at home? Have you ever found yourself wishing you had more time to get things done? The harsh reality is that everyone gets the same amount of time every day. What we need to learn is how to effectively accomplish our myriad tasks everyday - both at work and at home. Too many people try to "stay on top" of everything with inefficient tools that actually create more clutter - both physical and mental. Without becoming a "neat-freak" we can all learn how to de-clutter our desks and minds so that we can concentrate on the task at hand, get the important stuff done in less time, and simultaneously reduce our stress.
