Categories of Organizing

  1. Documents. The way you name your files can dramatically improve the organization of both your physical and your digital documents. Be consistent with file naming.
  2. Group all like office supplies together and considering what role they play in your broader organization system before going out on a shopping run.
  3. Electronic Documents. Many people use their computer and physical desktops as a de facto to do list. As a result, all the things they need to remember accumulate and create disorder.
  4. Space. Consider arranging space by activity zones.
  5. Time Management. Distinguish between events, which is time sensitive, and ordinary to-do items that are more flexible in time.

  • Confusing the process of throwing away with actually getting organized. Organizing is putting systems in place to find what you need when you need it. Decluttering is about identifying what is obsolete and getting rid of it to make room for what you plan to do next.

What ideas are

An idea is a connection between two concepts.

Steve Jobs said that creativity is just connecting things. When you understand that and think of ideas in that way, the process of generating ideas will seem a lot less intimidating.
