How to Simplify Your Life - Part 2

I hope you were able to find something useful in the last post. I'm constantly on the lookout for organizational/simplifying tools. Here are a few more.

Stop being a slave to communication tools. Do you really need an office phone, a home phone, a cellular phone, pager, fax, e-mail and internet ICQ technology?

Give away clerical tasks to others who can handle non-priority activities.

Stop spending time to save money. Instead, spend money to save time. Don't drive across town to save a few cents on a grocery item. It's not worth your time. Do hire someone to do chores you're not fond of.

Cancel subscriptions to magazines you never get around to reading. Only read one newspaper per day.

Cut back on television time. Only watch those shows you decide on beforehand. Circle them in the television-listing magazine. Then turn off the television when the program is over. Cancel extra cable television packages for channels you rarely watch. Go for broke. Give up watching television altogether. Think of all the time you'd regain! DVR things you want to watch and then schedule to watch them.

Simple, but not easy,
