Now is the time of year to do some seriously simple organising that will have a positive impact on both you and your workplace!
Archiving is an excellent opportunity to cull all your files and create the ‘space’ (both mental and physical) for new things in the year ahead. How often do you take the opportunity to archive?
Here are some guidelines:
Choose your archive boxes carefully – plastic protects archives from moisture and rodents but check for the rail either side to hang your files.
Clearly label each box on both ends and sides
Create a label with:
- Archive or Box Number
- Area of the business files are from
- Summary of Contents
- Year documents were created
- Year to be destroyed
Make a simple archive record by printing 3 copies of the label – 2 for the box and put one into a display book in number order. Alternatively use Excel or Access to make it searchable
Recently a Sorted4Life Biz in a Box consulting client said Sorted4Life helped them to figure out how to pull apart, find cracks and put back together their work, life and business.
Do your systems work?
Give them an overview this month and get them Sorted.
