Organized Living and Working in a Disorganized World

  • What are the biggest obstacles that keep us from gaining control over our paper and digital information?
  • Besides that great feeling you have when everything is in order, there’s a real monetary value from having organizing systems in place. Can you give some examples?
  • If there’s a listener that is facing stacks of stuff and clutter in their home or office that has built up for years … what steps should they take to turn things around and become more organized?
  • The internet was supposed to be the coming of the “paperless” business, but it seems to have gotten even worse than before.  Do you have any tips for handling the flood of emails and communications we get bombarded with every day?
  • You created a program specifically designed for the pandemic we are facing now called “Quarantine Quickstart.” What is that about?
