Solution to Paperwork and Electronic Messages

Is paperwork, email or electronic messages a stress factor in your life? It doesn't have to be. Here's how...

I've heard and seen so many comments and so much "good advice" when it comes to papers and paperwork. And even though I'm no expert, I've found one basic principle to be of the greatest benefit....

This principle applies not only to a potentially cluttered desk and disorganized papers, but also to any kind of message, be it email, SMS or even orally conveyed commitments:

Keep everything in one place and never deal with it more than once.

If, however, you need to revisit a piece of paper, an email or any other kind of information, make it come back to you. Always, always either eliminate messages or arrange for them to return without your time and effort. Believe me, if you consistently stick to this principle it will reduce stress and help you be a man of your word.
