Ready to finally get on top of your paperwork and start living a better, more productive life, both personally and professionally? It all starts with a solid organizational system with a proper place for everything (and everything in its place). However, it’s one thing to know you need to get organized and feel ready to get started. Actually knowing where to start is another. In this informative video, Alejandra of Alejandra TV shares her tried and true secrets for keeping her office files orderly and pristinely organized. Among other things, you will learn:
The Importance of Color Coding
A well-organized filing system is a system that allows you to find exactly what you’re looking for at a glance. (No more hunting around!) How you match categories to colors is completely up to you. Alejandra suggests making that call based on your own personal associations, as this will make it easier for you to remember quickly when you’re pressed for time or otherwise in a hurry. Suggested categories include permanent “never throw these away” papers, temporary files you’ll eventually dispose of, and tax or property documents.
Separate Personal and Professional
If you run a business out of your own personal home office, it will most likely make sense to you to keep personal and professional files in the same filing cabinet. However, it’s important to keep your important personal papers filed separately from your business-related documents. If you store personal documents for a spouse or children as well, each person should have their own folder so everything is easy to access when you need it.
Getting organized – it’s something we all have on our to-do list, but so few of us actually accomplish it. Apply Alejandra’s expert tips to your home office and experience the difference for yourself.
