1. O.H.I.O.= Only Handle It Once
  2. Times when this applies:
  3. Doing dishes.
    Don't just put a dish in the sink to be dealt with later. Rinse it and stick it in the dishwasher in one fell swoop.
  4. Email.
    Don't open and read an email if I can't deal with it right then. Open it, read it, archive/reply in one sitting. (This saved my sanity when I was working full-time.)
  5. Laundry.
    Don't take the clothes out of the dryer if I'm not also ready to put them away. (I almost never follow through with this one.)
  6. Tidying.
    Why pick something up and move it if I'm not going to put it away where it actually belongs?
