Sander’s 282-page book is brimming with little tips that will help you “nudge toward less awful.” Here are a few of my favorites:
* Keep a handy “charity box” for tossing in things that you don’t use but aren’t trash.
* Write down your top goals, save them as a text file, and set your web browser to display the goals as your home page.
* Instead of looking at your email when you start work for the day, spend 30 minutes on a high-priority project.
* Turn your hanging clothes around so the hooks point toward you. When you wear something, replace it on the rod by turning the hanger around (point side away). After one year, get rid of all the clothes with the hangers still pointing toward you.
