Less Stuff, Less Committments - More Efficiency

I recently read Julie Morgenstern's book, "When organizing isn't enough, shed your stuff, change your life".

Julie uses an acronym "shed". Shed stands for separate your treasures; heave your trash; embrace yourself, and drive for the future.

The gist of her message is we have too much stuff/junk and that clutter weighs heavily on our mind and stops us from moving forward.

She also speaks about this happening not only with the obvious clutter around the house or the business but with clutter in our schedule in what we do.

The time management tip for today is consider shedding -- separate what you treasure; heave the rest of it, embrace yourself (which means who you truly are and who you want to be), and drive for the future. (I interpret this as having a purpose and set clear goals).

There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.

--Peter Drucker
