  • If you want to be a ninja at getting things done, you need a system.

  • Here are some tips.

  • Write it down.

  • We call this your "inbox."

  • Next, put things from your inbox into a place you know you will look at, at the right time.

  • This might be your calendar, a shopping list, or in a project folder.

  • Speaking of projects, if a task can't be done without a series of steps, then you need to turn that task into a project by brainstorming every individual step required to complete that project.
