This one is a Steve Nipper two-fer. Resolve to declutter your computer:
A few weeks ago I blogged over at Rethink(IP) about how I manage my RSS aggregator by putting RSS Feeds on Probation. Michael Hyatt (Working Smart) takes a similar approch with the applications on his computer, blogging on how he has a Death Row folder where he moves programs/program shortcuts. If they don’t get used in the next thirty days…they get sent to the electric chair, er recycle bin.
Here is last year’s resolution (also via Nipper):
Keep track of the nice things people say about you, and of the people who are exceptionally happy with your work. When you are having a hard time at the office (or want to use some testimonials in your marketing materials) you have a list handy for a quick pick-me-up.
And in case you think it is a bit conceited to keep track of the people who love you, remember that you will build a far more successful business by marketing to your happiest customers than your unhappy ones.
Thanks to my friend, Steve Nipper, for the tip.
