I sit in my home office and evaluate my surroundings. The book shelf is tidy and the furniture is comfy, high-end, and professional. And . . . there is paper everywhere. Pieces of paper stacked in small, medium and large piles. Stacks of paper sit on any flat surface available. Sadly, my office at the community mental health center is in a similar condition.
I have a “paper problem”. I need a solution. I have one cabinet to stored unused paper. I have paper charts in a portable tote. I have a small file cabinet for everything else. I have a shred box at my day job and I am determining where to put my shred box at my home office.
I need to file / trash/ return/ shred nightly. This is a positive change I need to make as I return to the world of paper charts.
