Do you have more than ten business cards on your desk right now? If so, I’m talking to you!
The average person spends ten hours a week looking for information; that means you had a note on a piece of paper and maybe you scanned it into your computer but it’s also in a pile somewhere. Or maybe you have a phone number on a business card but that card is at your office and you are on the road so now you have to search online for that persons contact info. Ten hours a week! We’ve heard from the Time Management experts, “Check your email twice a day, touch that piece of paper once.” Yikes! “I have that piece of paper and I’ve been holding it for two hours—um where do I put it? Oh I bought the organizational system for papers but now I’m so organized (too organized) I can’t find that one piece of paper that I touched once and I need to touch it again, but I can’t find it!”
