    I’m loving these, especially the mental mind hacks and GSD and the article on self-control and cleaning your office. “Clearing to neutral” is excellent advice. I can clearly see how returning to my office in the morning and facing a messy desk with piles of papers does NOT lead me to feeling motivated to jump right in and start my day. I will definitely be clearing to neutral more often and I can’t wait to share this great productivity idea with my own clients.

    Thanks Sage!
