Message from Rita
Bruce & I just returned from a dream-come-true Mediterranean
cruise to Spain, Italy, Greece, Malta and Egypt. We were at the
Acropolis in Athens and the Pyramids in Egypt in the same week
-- awesome structures that we have seen photos of since we were
kids. Fantastic. Thrill beyond description.
I LOVE to cruise and HATE when it has to end! Fortunately, with
Daniel Hall's help and program "Speak on Cruise Ships: 8 Easy
Steps to a Lifetime of FREE Luxury Cruises" I can schedule a
cruise anytime for practically anywhere I want to go -- FREE!
Can you imagine? Here's the thing. YOU can too...
I wrote a blog for Daniel's Club (it was my first blog ever).
You can read all about Bruce & my adventures in the
Mediterranean at the "Speakers Cruise Free" blog
Seriously, anyone can do this when they have Daniel's help
and program and you can get it here.
AND if you want to write a book, Daniel and I have put
together a FREE TELESEMINAR "Finish Your Book, Get it Published
& Start Making Big $$ -FAST!" for Wednesday, April 1.
Details are at the end of this Tip Sheet. We are expecting a big
response & have only 200 phone lines so .... don't
And now, here are 10 tips for when you feel overwhelmed with too
much to do & you need to do SOMETHING to get organized.
10 TIPS TO START GETTING ORGANIZED
1. Make a giant list of everything that HAS to get done in the
next few months.
2. From that, make a list of what HAS to get done in the next
3. Select from the above lists what must be accomplished this
4. Every evening or morning (depending on your best time for
thinking clearly) take a post-it and write on it 5 things you
want to accomplish that day (these will be some of the many
steps that TOGETHER will achieve the bigger goals on the above
5. Identify your 5 to 10 Most Important Activities. What are the
really important activities that you must do to achieve your
goals (whether those goals are higher income, happy family,
productivity, learn to play the tuba, become more confident,
eliminate clutter, whatever.)
6. Print the above in BIG FONT and post where you can see it
7. Just as important, identify your time wasters. Actually write
a Do NOT Do List. It might include long phone calls with people
you donít want to or donít need to talk to, playing computer
games, rummaging through stacks of paper in search of something
important, reading goofy emails with poems, jokes or stuff that
"must be sent to 859 people within the next 30 seconds or youíll
have bad luck for the next 99 years", etc.
8. Print the above in BIG FONT and post where you can see it
9. Every day, process 5 pieces of paper clutter. Process means
put it where it belongs; or create a place for it to belong &
put it there; or best of all, get rid of it.
10. Pick one spot of clutter in your house and every day process
3 pieces of clutter. Process here means the same as above.
Doing these 10 simple steps will help you move into springtime
feeling like you have a plan and knowing what the next step is
to bring organization into your life.
The Project Lists will give you clarity about what you must take
care of immediately and what can be put off for a while. The
Activity and Do-NOT-Do Lists will help keep you focused on how
you should (and should not) be spending your time.
Together these will help you stay on track, even if you tend to
have problems keeping your attention on tasks.
