Make It Go Away Week is devoted to protecting our most important asset: the time it takes to give attention to one issue out of the thousands that yammer in the background. Deft opens with a step through the looking glass: sometimes doing something in reverse is amazingly efficient. The title, by the way, comes from my collection of vintage slang.

Sort mail on the way past the recycling bin rather than carrying junk into the heart of the house.

Quit. It’s a great way to get started.
