Tired of piles of useless paper that only waste your time
by having to shuffle through them over and over?
Open your mail over the trash can.
*Is it junk? Throw it out. Don't even read it.
*Is it duplicate information that you already have or can get elsewhere when needed? Throw it out.
*Is it non-urgent but necessary to keep? File it in it's proper place.
*Is it urgent? Handle it right away (or delegate it)
If you're finding yourself spending more than five minutes a day sifting through and deleting junk mail (e-mail or paper mail), unsubscribe from the useless stuff!
If it's on e-mail, you can usually unsubscribe at the bottom of any subscription type of e-mail. Taking just a minute to do that today will save you many minutes for all the days of the future.
If it's regular mail, unsubscribe to magazines and other subscriptions that you just don't have time to read anymore. Not only will you save yourself time, but money also--not to mention the trees that provide the paper for printing!
