Here's what I wrote in red caps on my OneNote Organizing Plan:
Write the Plan . . . Work the Plan
Be Tough. Have no mercy for junk you will never use. Get rid of it any way you can.
Out of sight. . . Out of Mind
Commit to completing this plan - one baby step at a time.
Remember, the mess didn't accumulate overnight, so it will not be organized overnight.
Do not start reading old docs and run for your computer instead of staying on plan.
I will read this every day before I start with the tasks that follow. Maybe YOU have some more encouraging words I can include.
