The 5S framework ...

Picture taken from Explained: 5S Framework – Beginner’s Guidehttps://www.6sigma.us/six-sigma-articles/explained-5s-framework-beginners-guide/ 

"5S is a methodology that is used in workplaces across the world. The “5S” name comes from the 5 Japanese words that make up the process. The five words are seiri, sieton, seiso, seiketus, and shitsuke. Roughly translated these words stand for sort, set in order, shine, standardize, and sustain."

"5S began as part of the Toyota Production System (TPS), the manufacturing method begun by leaders at the Toyota Motor Company in the early and mid-20th century. 5S is a system for organizing spaces so work can be performed efficiently, effectively, and safely. This system focuses on putting everything where it belongs and keeping the workplace clean, which makes it easier for people to do their jobs without wasting time or risking injury."

Now here is the trick 😉 - use the initial idea of 5S (sortset in ordershinestandardize, and sustain) then copy and transfer it to a different environment - why not your business and private ToDo lists for example?
