Did you know that we've gone from being exposed to about 500 ads a day back in the 1970's to as many as 5,000 a day today. According to President of the Marketing Firm Yankelovich, Jay Walker-Smith "it's a non-stop blitz of advertising messages."
That's ads alone. The average daily media intake is currently being calculated according to the NYT is 34 Gigabites per day!
So how do we filter this information. Organization of course! This allows you to spend intentional attention to what's in front of you and create a fabulous time management habit in the process.
There's a lot of information coming at us like a tidal wave. And in order to process it we need a process to filter that water! By breaking it down into smaller droplets we are able to give our focused attention to what's in front of us - Peace by Piece

Keeping track of tax deductible items and receipts is as easy as taking a picture. And since a picture is worth a thousand words it’s the perfect way to capture those tax items.
Create an album on your cell phone – name it “2014 Tax Info”. Place the following “photo docs” into this album.
Take a photo of your Salvation Army and Goodwill receipts. Be sure to snap a photo of the clothing and/or household items donated as well!
Take a photo of tax documents and unreimbursed work expenses occurring mid-year, like stock sales, work tools, or K-12 school expenses.
Take a photo of your business receipts. Name it “Meals 012214” (expense category and date in 6 digit format). Depending on volume of tax documents, it may be a good idea to create a new album called “2014 Biz Receipts”. Be consistent with your photo names, it will make sorting and finding a specific receipt easier down the road.
Back up your photos on a regular basis. Create a download file on your computer or tablet or utilize an online/cloud based storage system to keep your portfolio safe.
To your most organized self - Peace by Piece.
