Well, that’s it — our 5-Day Digital Organization Challenge is finally over!
It’s a win-win for you:
- You now have some tools and techniques to become more organized but, more importantly, to remove those Time Squanders — the little 5-10 minute frustrations that we don’t even notice, but added up eat up a big chunk of our day.
- You now have the opportunity to win some awesome prizes! More details on that below.
Here’s a recap of the Challenge:
- Day 1: The Power Of the Dropzone
- Day 2: Keep Favorites A Click Away
- Day 3: What’s In A Name?
- Day 4: Keep Things Clear and Focused
- Day 5: Get Some Help
Remember, being organized isn’t like flipping a light switch — there isn’t an “on” and “off” state. Like anything else productivity-wise, it’s a process.
As we said in Day 5, use the tips in the Challenge to set up your system for the new items coming in, and then set some time aside a few times a week (it doesn’t have to be much — 15-30 minutes!) to chip away at your backlog. The more you do, the faster you’ll get at it.
Once you finish your backlog (yes, it is possible!), you can scale down your “get organized time” to once a week and use that to stay on top of things.
Here’s How To Enter The Contest

Humans realize they can achieve more together than alone. They learn one other's skills and shortcomings to complete the mission. Students learn that while not everyone does the same work or has the same knowledge, the group's variety may be its strength.
Bummer! I don’t do email on Sundays. I missed this (above) after carefully walking through and implementing the challenges every day. It’s sad that they all came out each day at the end of my day (bedtime)—which made the challenge x2 more challenging for me due to lack of energy after long days at work. Then, taking time off on Sunday I find that I missed the final form bit. Hmm! Maybe you guys need to have a look at the value of the “day off” on Sundays! ;-) I love Mondays at work, because I take the time off on Sundays. You ought to try a day off even with the challenges, and let us have more time to fill in forms. Sad to miss this, but glad I got my rest at the weekend.
