How often do you, when you come home, put things(like the mail or your briefcase, or a jacket) down and think ‘I’ll get to that later..’ ?  Maybe you need to empty your briefcase or tote bag. Do you ever ‘loose’ the keys because they are in the pocket of your jacket or the bottom of your bag? The things you put down stay where you put them until you take the time to go back, pick them up, and put them where they belong.  You can save time by completing the tasks. It takes longer to remember what it is you have left ‘to do’ than it does to just complete the tasks – hang up your jacket, put the mail in the mail landing zone, put your briefcase by your desk and empty it, put the keys in their place… 

Think about the things you would like to do when you come home to save yourself some time.

Close the circle – complete the task –  save yourself steps and time. Try it for a few days and let me know how it goes.
