In 4 steps and 1 hour to perfect order

In this case, 15 minutes are scheduled for each work step. It is best to set a clock or an alarm clock. And: nobody and nothing should disturb you.

1. Develop strategy

In the first 15 minutes you develop one Strategy: What is that Objective the cleanup? What should it look like in the end? Prepare the necessary tools for cleaning up, such as garbage cans and the shelf, and set them up for surethat there is enough space in the organization system to accommodate the objects lying around. If you use the first quarter of an hour for optimal planning, you can do the rest better and faster.

2. Make a stack

When you have completed the planning phase, set the clock or alarm again to 15 minutes. Take everything lying around and place it on one of the three piles: A for papers and things you want to keep. B for papers you still need to review. C for papers and things you want to throw away. It is best to throw these directly into the previously prepared waste containers. When the clock or alarm beeps, you must be ready. There should not be anything left in the room except the heaps.

3. Decide what gets away and what stays

Now comes the hardest step: again, you only have 15 minutes to go through the papers in Pile B and close decidewhether you still need them or throw them away. If you still need them, put them in Pile A. But you should also know where to put them in your organization right away. If not: Immediately to C in the waste container. You will see: Due to the time pressure, you make decisions much more rigorously - if in doubt, throw them away! When the alarm or clock beeps, you should only be left with Stack A and the trash can.

4. sorting

You now have another 15 minutes to put the items in Pile A into your ordering system. Now it shows how good you are System is how well you have planned and how rigorously you have decluttered. If you can't complete the task in 15 minutes, you should reconsider these three aspects. Now all you have to do is take out the trash - done!
