    I love this blog, Mike. This has some great ideas. I especially liked the one about “shut the door.” It’s about the same as stop checking email during tasks. Thank you all for the GREAT ideas. I’m going to work on a few of them this week! I love being a part of this group.

      @Susan – kinda a back to basics idea. Really simple…. just turn it off.

    I look forward everytime a new post has gone live to reading all the contributions. I get great ideas and learn something new everytime. Thank you to all the contributors for giving me great insight into new ways to grow my business. Thank you Mike Michalowicz for bring us all together. Happy 2011!

      @Eula – Thanks so much for the kind words. You know, every time I read these lists it is the old 80/20 rule for me. 20% of the stuff is basically 80% amazing. The funny thing is, that the 20% of amazing stuff is different for every reader. That is why I like big lists that we all can just scan through and cherry pick the stuff that applies. Wishing you a very successful 2011.

    You the best thing about this blog !
    It keep you coming back for more.
    Again.a post not to read in a single sit.
    Even i totally agree,that a clean office environment is more convivial to produce better ideas amongst the fellow colleagues.
    If you have a board by your side or on the wall of your cubicle,write the to-do list for the day.Prioritize them into the mustbe,can be and delegated types and write each with a different color(sounds appealing to the eye)!.
    keep ticking them as and when you have finished them.
    Works really great if write your to-do’s.
    It develops a sense of urgency within you.

    Great stuff! I consider myself very organized, but did get some helpful tips. Thanks Mike!

    Seems like the one theme throughout the posts was organization and keeping clutter out. Definitely think doing those helps to clear the air figuratively and literally. Great suggestions.

      @Mike – Agreed. I totally believe in try one thing and stick to it. If it works great, if not, try the next. But trying multiple things at once is just plain overwhelming.

    Good stuff!  Mostly around workplace organization.  There is a great tool to help people organize their work-space called 5S – It’s a five step process that has each step start with a word starting with an “s”:  1. Sort, 2. Straighten, 3. Shine, 4.Standardize, and 5. Sustain.  You can learn more about 5S and several other “Lean” techniques to improving your efficiency at:
