Simple Productivity Task Of The Day: Throw Something Else Away

by Randy Murray on May 20, 2014

One of the most helpful things that you can do to make your self more productive is to accomplish something. If you followed my advice from yesterday you threw something away. Congratulations! You accomplished something.

Let’s do it again. Pick something else, something without purpose or use, and dispose of it. Give it away. Recycle it. Haul it out into the middle of the street and set it on fire.*

Do not use this an excuse to clean your office, desk drawers, or closet. Pick one thing that no longer is needed and get rid of it. Then get back to work.

Repeat this practice daily until you can no longer easily identify unneeded objects and you can work without distraction.


*As my wife repeatedly reminds me, I am not allowed to haul things into the middle of the street and set them on fire. But I’m sure you can appreciate the sentiment.
