Aug. 1, 2012 - PRLog -- DENVER, Colorado, August 1, 2012 – Time management and productivity expert Laura Stack released her newest blog in the “Work Less, More Success” series, aimed at offering readers guidelines for streamlining information flow and creating a reliable personal time management system. In step four in the six-step Productivity Workflow Formula (PWF) process, Stack focuses on key concepts from her latest book titled “What to Do When There’s Too Much to Do,” to help readers process new information efficiently.

Titled “Process New Information: Reduce Processing Time," Stack dissects how to streamline information flow and cut back on unnecessary time expenditures. The first task, Stack says, is to set up an efficient filing system with a simple labeling scheme using an easily-remembered noun as the first word in each file title and subcategories to better organize files.

“Apply the system to all your electronic and paper files,” Stack says. “No document should ever take you more than a minute or so to find.”

Stack provides detailed advice on setting up a reliable personal time management system, which involves some variety of organizers – whether paper, electronic, or hybrid – to keep track of schedules and contacts. Effective systems meet the “HUG” criteria—they are handy, usable, and garbage-free.

“Involuntary data inflow, especially email and phone calls, will likely represent a bigger problem,” Stack says. “You can cut back on their influence by checking it just a few times per day and processing your in-boxes down to zero each time you do check, ‘triaging’ on the fly.”

Because most work comes in via email, Stack recommends some foundational principles to reduce processing time. Applied in conjunction with her original 6-D Information Processing System™—Discard, Delegate, Do, Date, Drawer, Deter—Stack guides readers in adopting these new methods, so they can reduce the time spent handling information to a manageable level.
