Resolve to improve your organisational skills and use a filing system both at home, at work, and on your computer.
As much as 30% of the day is spent looking for misplaced items! These are things that are lost because they have not been filed correctly!
Does this sound familiar to you?
There are few activities so frustrating as spending your valuable time looking for misplaced information and materials because no thought was given to a filing and retrieval system!
The best and simplest of all filing systems is an alphabetical system.
In conjunction with a filing system, you should have a master list or record of all your files in a single place, like on your desktop. This master list gives you the title of each file and tells you where the file is located.
