How to organize everything

If you see it, own it

Part 3: If you see it, own it (put it away).

This is a really powerful principle, deceptively simple. As you move through your day, play a continual game: if your eye registers something, you have to deal with it.

So if you see something that’s fallen to the floor, you have to immediately pick it up and put it, not just anywhere, but in its place. If it doesn’t have a place, immediately make one.

Take this literally. If you’re rushing out and don’t have time to deal with anything that’s out of place, DON’T LOOK AT IT. Simple as that.
