"Why didn't I think of that?" We guarantee you'll be uttering those words more than once at these ingenious little tips, tricks and ideas that solve everyday problems. When I received these tips through email, I decided to share them with you all. The email did not indicate where each tip came from so I am unable to post each credit.

Do you find yourself coming up with great ideas, but lack the ability to put them into action? Here's an easy system that will save time and bring your most productive ideas to life. 1.) Write ideas on Paper. If ideas come to you sporadically, then keep a memo pad with you at all times. It may be easiest to have a brainstorming session to write your ideas all at once. I call this the INCEPTION phase. 2.) Choose three to six of the most promising ideas. Those are the ideas you'll concentrate on and let the rest of your ideas go "for now." Do not try to work on too many ideas that you don't do justice to any ONE of them. When choosing the most promising ideas, use your best judgement "for now." DON'T WORRY IF ITS NOT GOOD JUDGEMENT AT THIS POINT . . . just do it. I call this the BIRTH phase.
If all other time management tips have failed you, try the easiest method available. Schedule tasks in time blocks. Example: Set time to do paperwork from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and a time to run errands to be anytime after 1 p.m. Unless an errand is a dire emergency, it can wait. Chances are the errand won’t be that urgent that it can’t wait two or so more hours. Start now and get control of your time. See an example of a Time Block and Blank Form below.
