Less is more!
If you cannot implement an idea in the next 48 hours do NOT print it off or keep it. Get rid of it.
We live in the information age! Ideas abound! Do not keep magazines or old catalogs. All the information is a click away on your computer.
As you go through your paper piles as yourself, “Will I implement this idea in the next 48 hours?” If the answer is no then recycle it now!
If you come across a recipe you ripped out of a magazine 6 months ago or an idea you printed from an email, or conference notes from last year’s conference, etc. ask yourself, “Am I going to use this in the next 48 hours?” If not, recycle it. Get rid of it. Adios.
No need to figure out where to file it or never get around to filing it so it ends up in another pile.
Does The 48 Hour Rule seem doable in your business or home? Why or why not?
