Consider the example of books, but similar and proceed with the files in your computer. We first introduce a general classifier: – art – special profession – sports – Spirituality – Esoteric – books on health – etc. Within each category can be sub-categories For example: Category – Esoteric: – Feng Shui – Numerology – Physiognomy – etc. Similarly, all other categories. Already, this analysis will show you the diversity of your interests. This is useful if only in order to understand – where that came from and for what purpose. And also to decide – whether you need it or not.
Rate this structure can be quantitatively. For this purpose we count the number of books on every topic. The second step – Shoe. In this step we are taking action – what to do with the available information. How relevant to your specific theme? Know the world is interesting, this one does not argue, but can not be sure.
Can propose the following algorithm: 1. Identify the most important areas of your life: career, family, finances, intellectual, physical, spiritual development, etc. 2. Schedule – the desired goals in every area – short and long term. 3. Define – what information you need. 4. Based on the goals and information, you can carry out further cleaning. The process of setting goals, of course, is more complicated. To Him we shall return in later articles. When finished, thus, goal setting, purge. Options may be few. – Leave, – to give to the library, children's homes – to give to friends – bring them to Second-hand bookseller at a book fair (to invite those who sell old books) – throw away. If the decision in dispute, then we can put the book aside for a temporary storage. This may be a special remote location – such as a pantry. And throw a pity, and do not know – maybe it'll still do it. Let the solution . The next time it may become increasingly clear that these books do. Third step: Determine the storage location. It is desirable for each category to find a permanent place of storage. For books – is certain shelf in a particular closet. Each thematic category should find its storage. Categories similar topics are best kept close by. The fourth step – Maintain order. Regularly monitor the status of your installed system. For a certain period of time comes new information, purchase new books. Part of the book is used and removed from the shelves. If you periodically, for example, at the end of the month to monitor and set in order that you set yourself a system that can guarantee the absence of state of "information overload". After longer periods of time, eg six months – a year, should have "adjust" your system. There are new interests, some topics were irrelevant. Bring in line and your system organizing and storing in accordance with these changes. Performing the review 4 steps will get rid of the chaos, both in your surrounding area and in your head. and Your attention, free from the "information blockages," focuses on resolving the major current challenges.
