Quote about productivity

Productivity is really about what you don’t do.

— Jocelyn K. Glei

— Dr. Earl Miller, professor of neuroscience at M.I.T.


Decluttering tip

“Throw all the stuff from your kitchen “junk” drawer into an empty box. Leave the box next to the kitchen for a month. Whenever you need something out of the box, put it back in the drawer. Things that are still in the box a month later, you probably won’t ever need again.”

– Peter Walsh, Australian-American professional organizer

We wanted to make the best for the most for the least.”

— Charles and Ray Eames
