Get A Life! Part 4 - The Paper Trail Culture

Dear Friends,

Here is week 4 of the 5 Mega-Realities:

The 5 Mega-Realities:
1. Population growth
2. An expanding volume of knowledge

3. Mass media growth and electronic addiction
4. The paper trail culture
5. An overabundance of choices

This week's segment is about The Paper Trail Culture and a few life saving tips that you can apply.

(Taken in part from "Get a Life! Living and Working at a Comfortable Pace in a High-Speed World".)

#4 - The Paper Trail Culture

The amount of paper that comes into your life each day is growing at an astronomical rate. Controlling that paper flow is a continual challenge that eats up more and more of your time - both at work and at home.

At work, studies of paper retention show that about 80% of papers retained in office environments are never used. So, you're probably holding on to five times what you
need, and your ability to find and use what you do need gets more difficult with every piece of paper that you save.

At home, the average person spends a total of eight solid months of his or her life reading junk mail. I want those 8 months, how about you?

Life Savers:

Clear the in-bins of your mind and your desk.
Regard each piece of paper that enters your personal kingdom as a potential mutineer.

Does it support your priorities? If not, recycle it. Manythings that compete for your attention have value, but you can't respond to them all.

Go with what's most important and have the mental and emotional strength to let go of the rest.

Next week we will discuss:
#5 - An Overabundance of Choices

the best is yet to be!
