Tip 91. Every loose paper on your desk is a decision not made.

Education & Training with Vetter Productivity, Inc.

Why do you think your desk and office are so cluttered?

Hint: It’s not because the cleaning lady didn’t come.

Every time you put a piece of paper down, in effect you are choosing not to make a decision about that piece of paper. Why? Perhaps because the decision is too uncomfortable or too painful to make.

The next time you feel the urge to lay down a piece of paper, take a deep breath and become conscious of what you are about to do. Heck it’s okay if you put the paper down and don’t make a decision. What matters is that you become aware of the process— and what happens to your life when you don’t make decisions.

Change occurs only after awareness.
