Can You See Over The Piles Of Papers On Your Desk?

The prime directive for all paperwork: "If in doubt, throw it out."

Paperwork (a.k.a. letters, faxes, e-mails, forms, bills, newsletters, invoices, travel receipts, memos, contracts, proposals, time cards, budgets, reports, taxes -- all that stuff that you have to deal with) has to be completed. It has a purpose and a benefit. So organize it once and conquer it! Create a system. Sign it, send it on, file it or do whatever is needed to complete it productively with the least time and effort on your part.

Be critical as you encounter each piece of paper today. Make short notes on the important parts, but don't keep the fluff.

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Organize Color: Make Paper Work Productive Work.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. What pieces of paper now on your desk are not necessary?
  3. Could this apply to your files as well?
  5. Can you make time right now to clear the paperwork from your desk and simplify your work space?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Organize Factor 8F? (Make Paper Work Productive Work.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (8F rated 8 or better) suggests the efficient processing of paperwork is one of your best organizational tools. Knowing that paperwork will never go away, you decided to conquer it. You transformed "paperWORK" into "paperFUN!" You created a powerfully simple system to process each piece of paper that comes your way -- allowing you the freedom to move on to more productive activities.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you may believe that anything is more productive and enjoyable than paperwork. Even the thought of paperwork may drive you crazy -- and your first decision is to put if off. You are a master at "getting ready to get ready." You review each piece numerous times, then organize them into new stacks. These stacks continue to grow from additional notices, repeated requests and required written explanations for why things weren't done the first time you touched it.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 8F more frequently?

You have more power. Paperwork is completed in a smooth and efficient manner without undo burden or delay.

You accumulate performance positives like "Prompt, Procedural and Diligent" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 8F?

You have less power. Paperwork takes longer to complete and causes more long-term suffering than necessary.

Negatives like "Tardy, Indecisive and Undisciplined" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.

"Worth 1000 Times the price paid..."

Been there... done that... and I'm not easily impressed. I've purchased thousands of dollars of books, seminars, video tapes, and an assortment of training aids that would fill a garage. Never have I been so impressed before. Simple, straight-forward and very structured. This is the LAST program I will ever need to take! I wish it would have been my FIRST...
