We’ve made it to the final lesson of our Step-by-Step Home Organizing Party–Lesson #9! Below is a brief outline of this week’s podcast, and if you want to officially sign up for the party, please go to https://LearnDoBecome.com/party. There, you’ll get access to all the bonuses, and you can go through all the lessons at your own pace!
In today’s podcast, I cover the eight questions you need to ask yourself when processing anything into your system to ensure nothing is falling through the cracks. This is the same processing method we teach in our Steps to Everyday Productivity (STEP) program to process ALL the ideas, papers, thoughts, goals, tasks, and “stuff.”
Once you have a seamless system in place (a STEP Command Central) to hold everything for you, your brain will feel calm. No need to carry a “mental load” of all the to-do list items when you can put it into a system where it will be safe. You’ll never have to think about those items until it’s time to work on a specific task; and at that point, you can find anything you need within 30 seconds!
As you use these questions to process, please remember–the goal by the end of this processing is to be able to answer these two questions:
- “When will I see this again?”
- “How is it going to get done?”
8 Processing Questions
- Is an action required? (If not, archive it.)
- Can I do it in two minutes or less? (If so, then do it.)
- Does it belong on my Routines List? (If yes, add it appropriately.)
- Do I need to add any projects to my tiered list? (Make sure ONLY 2-3 are in “Current.”)
- Is there a deadline? (If yes, note it on your calendar.)
- What is the Next Action? (Appropriately note it/delegate it.)
- Are there any associated Support Materials? (File them appropriately.)
- Am I TOTALLY clear on when I will see this and complete it?
Here at LearnDoBecome, we want you to have a solid foundation so that you can live a life full of meaning–one where you wake up each day excited and go to bed content.
My dream is to have a STEP Command Central on every desk. Why? Because I honestly believe that if I can fully live MY mission–and help you get organized and clear all the piles in your life, you’re going to be able to fully live YOUR mission.
And that is world-changing right there.
For the tens of thousands of you already in our STEP program, this system is all explained there, step by step….
And if you’re thinking, “I could use a system to manage my stuff,” our free training will change your life. Seriously.
We’ll teach you how to create both a Current Projects List and Next Actions List so that you have the tools you need to tackle the ‘piles’–mental or physical! We are ecstatic for you to join the movement: click here to sign up!
