Declutter Your Files
File cabinets are full of papers you will never look at again. I'm convinced that 80 percent of what goes into a filing cabinet never sees the light of day again. It's incredibly difficult to throw away files. After all, at some point in time you thought this piece of paper was so valuable that it deserved to be filed. And now you're going to just...throw it away? The answer is, yes. That's exactly what you're going to do—on a regular basis comb through your files and discard those once indispensable, now completely unnecessary pieces of paper.
