In this video I go through the why and HOW I sort and decide what to keep, archive, or shred when downsizing my filing cabinet
In the next few weeks I'm going to briefly explain the main systems that can help your personal productivity in the office.
My Mentor Barbara Hemphill calls these "The Magic 6". For some, these will be common sense, and for others it may be a vital missing part that could make a huge difference in their daily work.
The first one is Desktop tools...
I see it often. That pile of papers in your office or home that you keep moving around or avoiding.
"I'll sort that stuff out later"
"I'll jut put it here for now"
Maybe its those emails clogging up your inbox or files all over the desktop screen on your computer.
You might shuffle them around every now and then, but generally, the pile just keeps gets bigger.
Do you have a dedicated location in your office for stationery? I'm talking pens, notebooks, extra staples, blank CDs, envelopes.. Anything that's blank or a refill or consumable on or around your desk.
Sometimes when I meet someone new and tell them that I'm a Professional Organiser, they ask me "so you must be pretty organised at home then?" And I agree, I am mostly organised and not a fan of clutter. But some people ask if I'm a neat freak, to which I reply a big, definite "No."
