Last night I had the privilege of speaking to a group on Office Organizing. If I was going to boil it down to one takeaway it would be this. You never look at 80% of the papers that you file away. So really be tough with yourself and determine if you really need that piece of paper. If you aren’t sure, think about scanning it in and keeping it on your computer. Here is my real life example, as a lawyer I would attend CLE classes and I would always be given a binder at every class I took. How many of those binders did I ever look at after my class, you guessed it….just 20%!
