The Big Picture of Organizing Work Files

Erin Doland writes a short musing on why organizing work files really matters. She recounts in college being a trustee for an important community service organization, and she had four notebooks stuffed with papers that she considered to be her “files.” A fellow trustee named Lisa meanwhile had all her documents perfectly organized at all times, and upon seeing Doland’s mess, Lisa spoke up. She pointed out that while the mess might work for Doland, it would be a pain for the person who succeeded her in the organization. That was when Doland realized for the first time that documentation matters to more people than just you, and the responsible thing to do for everyone’s sake is keep your paperwork orderly. You can read the story in her own words here: http://unclutterer.com/2008/06/17/the-big-picture-organizing-work-files/
