Who can clean up is not promoted


This is particularly true when dealing with the new media, which on the one hand make everything faster, on the other hand also require that we ourselves become ever faster.

The book of the clearing expert Jürgen kurz comes just in time. Because whoever has time to search, is definitely not promoted.

Read and save time


You will need around three hours to read the book "Tidied up - even digital". Maybe four, if you work through it systematically with a highlighter and yellow post-its.

More certainly not. And you will catch up with this time in the next few days if you work in the office or at home on a PC. Because author Jürgen Kurz helps you with many little tips, your files, eMails, folders and notes to organize better.

One hour a day more time


Around 13 percent of a working day, according to the author, go for finding relevant information or data on it, more than an hour. In the future you will be knocking out or leaving for really important work - if that Chef plays along - earlier home.

A complete re-organization of your way of working is not necessary for it, it is more the small art handles, which have immediate effect. Here is a selection of the best tips.

12 Tips for tidying up

  2. eMails: Any eMailRequest, which you can do in just 5 minutes, edit immediately and then move or delete them.

  11. Notifications from social networks let you of your eMailSort the program by filter and move it to a separate folder. These are only read in the evening.
