Does your work flow? Professional organizer Liz Franklin says we all handle paper in pretty much the same way:

  1. We look at it.
  2. We sort it.
  3. We begin working (with computer, phone, making notes, etc.).
  4. We input it or record it.
  5. We may store it for further action (sometimes called “latering”).
  6. We print it out or fax it.
  7. We eventually get rid of it by filing it, shredding it, recycling it or throwing it away.

If you arrange your workspace around those seven stations, you won’t have to double-back and cross paper over its old path. And paperwork will flow in an organized way.
