Do things straight away
If you need to make a call, send a letter or email, or arrange something, do it at once. Then you can forget about it. When you know you've got to do something and never quite get round to it, it becomes a hassle. So next time something demands your attention, ignore your procrastinating inner voice and do it. Job done!
This is, without a doubt, a sensible tip. I have tried it with some success in the past, I just need to keep remembering that it's important to do.things.straight.away (note to self: cut out article, highlight appropriate text and stick on fridge door; read daily).
Keep track of paperwork
You need three boxes for this: one for receipts, one for things that need to be filed and one for things that need to be dealt with. When letters come in don't pile them high on top of several months' worth of magazines, bills and other letters, just stick them in the correct boxes. Set aside 20 minutes one morning a week to go through the boxes and deal with them. If you do little and often, it won't pile up and overwhelm you.
Now this is one I've never tried before. Considering this is what my hallway table (the one where all the post gets dumped) looks like at the moment, I guess you could say that keeping track of paperwork should be considered a priority.
I'll tell you what, if this tip works, I may even buy the book. Stay tuned.
