Have you got a pile of unopened mail on your dining room table? Maybe it's in a pile on the counter. Here's some magic to make it disappear.
- Take all the mail offers and put them directly in the recycling bin. You can be sure, there are more on their way.
- Take all other enveloped articles and remove the envelopes. If you have to, staple the envelop contents together.
- Divide the remaining articles into three piles Act Now, Follow Up and Think About. Book time for the Act Now items. Most of the items in the Think About you can throw out. You will probably never think about them and they are probably not on your list of top priorities.
Presto! A small pile of items that really require your attention.
