Life gets crazy sometimes. We don't always know what is around the corner. Is my new job going to pan out? Is my marriage going to make it? Is my car going to last one more season or do I need to trade it in now?

Some of the easiest, most simple ways to become more productive, and eventually more successful, come from just a little bit of organization.
