File Tips

by on August 11, 2011

Great meeting today.  More on that later.

 

I thought I would share an acronym that I find helpful when looking at a pile of paper that should be filed.

WASTE

W – is the piece of paper WORTHWHILE enough to keep?

A – will I use it AGAIN?

S – is it available SOMEWHERE else?

T – what would happen if I TOSS it?

E – do I need to keep the ENTIRE file?

This system helps me cut down the  amount of paper that I and my clients really need to keep.

Hope it helps you as well.

  1. Good words indeed! I should chisel them in stone and put them prominently somewhere in front of me. I am the worst of the worst pack rats. Thanks.
