My laptop died today - I've done everything I can to try and fix him but alas it is not to be. Sorry about the extended delay in postings as I sorted out a replacement.

New class: Eliminating paper from your life 101

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterestlinkedinby feather

Document Paper File Stack Paperwork Organization Data

I’m teaching this class again, this time at Berkeley Adult School.

This class will show you how to get back in control of paper and eliminate most of it from your life. Even in this digital age, paper is ubiquitous. It comes at us daily. You need to handle it regularly so it doesn’t take over your life.

Here are the details:

Date: September 27. Time: 6:00 to 8:30 pm.
Venue: Berkeley Adult School, 1701 San Pablo Ave, Berkeley, CA 94702
Fee: $25
Sign up here or go to the Adult School website and visit the catalog there. Contact me if you need help

We’ll talk about the common reasons that paper piles up. Just realizing why you’ve kept a certain document will help you understand how to deal with it. I will introduce several key paper organizing concepts and show you exactly how to sort your paper so that you’re only keeping what you really need and storing it where you can find it again. Feel free to bring your own pile and ask questions!

Paper is here to stay, but you can learn to be the boss of it. I’ll teach you techniques you can start using right away such as 1) what questions to ask to figure out whether to keep something, 2) my DRAFTS system for handling mail and 3) what do to about the “maybes” and “I don’t knows.”
