    Have you ever read "Getting Things Done"? It was a book that really helped me get things organized. One thing he says -- and I found this particularly true -- was that you need to identify the very next step you need to take to get something done. Seems reasonable, most of us think we do that. But, a lot of time we either skip steps or lump multiple things together. For example, maybe you need to call this doctor for an appointment, but never seems like you do. Maybe, the next step is not to call the doctor, but call your friend for the phone number because you lost the number. It was amazing how many times I putting things off because there were intermediate steps I needed to take.

    He also has a nice system for dealing with email. I literally gets hundreds a day at work. I'm by no means perfect, but his system has helped me have better control at least. One of his things (and this goes for mail too) is that we look at things, that we don't need to, multiple times. I can post more later (in my journal, so I stop hijacking Paula's journal).

    For email, unless, I have allowed the sender into my inbox, everything goes to junk. I mostly delete junk several times daily, but do look for the occasional friend or important email. Same with snail mail, I throw away the junk as I walk in the door and open all other mail, set aside the bills and toss the rest. It is unlikely that you will toss an important bill or notice, and it really keeps the pile under control. Mail is easy to avoid if bills stress you out, this is why I have always tried to tackle the worst jobs first as they are never as bad as I have built them up to be in my head. if I feel overwhelmed, I can always take a break, let my brain process it for a while and then get back to it

    Thanks for posting this stuff. We all have messy parts of our life we would like to tackle, but get lost in the "mess"!

    Painting in the basement....

    BIW Module 3 Lesson 1

    1) Visualize a successful outcome to your issue like Michael Phelps visualizes every moment of a race.

    2) Create a concrete version of your vision in pictures or on a vision board. Dean's dream is to do a TED talk. He has a photoshopped pic on his desktop of him speaking on the TED stage.

    I could photoshop an old photo of myself to make myself in the photo look my age now.

    Painting Done. Laying floor next week.

    BIW mod 3 Lesson 2

    Build in sensible practice. Practice in small chunks. *Don't try out your moves at a major party the first time, maybe start with a lunch out.

    Act out the moves or steps of your plan. *Practice saying "No Thank You"

    Practice under similar circumstances. * Buy a treat, but delay having the treat for a certain amount of time.
