The real issue here isn’t whether to file, but how to file. My clients routinely fail to file well because they don’t believe they have the time or wherewithal to create a filing system that will actually work.
Just Look to Your Kitchen for Guidance
Most people cry, “But I’d don’t know where to start!” whenever the issue of creating a filing system is brought up. Nonesense. Just look to the silverware drawer in virtually everyone’s kitchen. It’s organized, so it can’t be that hard. Note, the silverware drawer stands in stark contract to the “junk” drawer which is generally a disaster.
What’s my point? Ask yourself which system works better for you. Read on if you answered the silverware drawer.
