In this video, Tom Solid discusses how to avoid scattered information and get organized using ICOR®. Tom emphasizes the importance of having a Single Source of Truth, which is a final destination for all information, to easily retrieve it later. Tom also suggests using specific apps for different types of information, such as a reminder app for reminders, a calendar app for events, and a task management app for tasks. ICOR® consists of four stages: INPUT, CONTROL, OUTPUT, and REFINE. The INPUT stage focuses on moving information from the outside world into your world and involves asking three questions: what type of information is this, where should I store it to retrieve it intuitively, and how do I take care of my future self. The CONTROL stage focuses on deciding what to do with the captured information and provides a pause to think about it. The video suggests creating well-defined inboxes to process information later on. Finally, the video recommends following these recommendations to have organized and easily retrievable information.
