What Do I Have To Work On Right Now?...
Staying focused at work can be difficult. There are usually many distractions and interruptions pulling your attention away from the task you’re supposed to be working on.
Prioritizing these tasks can be helpful. Grab a piece of paper.  As quickly as you can, list several tasks you need to work on. From that list, pull the top three that are the most urgent. Now, list those in priority order by asking the question, “What do I need to work on right now?” It’s a simple question, but one that will keep you in present time when the workplace around you pulls your attention away.
Organized In No Time Flat...
If you must keep those boxes that your electronic Christmas gifts came in, break them down so that they can be stored flat.  No more towering stacks of empty boxes cluttering your storage spaces.
