As we begin, let me give you this reminder from the Word of God. Psalm 37:5 says: “Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”

Our quote for today is from Ralph Marston. He said: “What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.”

Today, in the Get Things Done podcast we are looking at Part 2 of Step 7: “Establish an Action Environment”.

Q: You also mentioned that having things organized will help reduce the temptation to procrastinate. Exactly what did you mean by that?

I mean that it important to avoid clutter in the workplace.

A neat, orderly workbench, with each tool hanging in its allotted space, is an invitation to get busy, whereas a jumbled aggregation of wrenches, pipes, hammers, clamps, wire, files, pliers, sandpaper, and half-finished projects stifles enthusiasm and encourages delay and diversion.

The same is true in an office. A tidy desk encourages concentration; a disheveled one is a psychological roadblock.
