Making It All Work- Files
I'd like to tackle clearing out and setting up my file folders. My understanding from the book is that there are general reference files in folders labeled by topic and there are action support files. For some projects, there may be multiple folders (eg: for my job search project: marketing materials, active leads, closed leads, networking lists, etc). I also have 1/2 drawer for all my financial files which I like keep together in one area for easy access.
My question is: I have a double lateral file drawer. Do I combine the active project sub folders with the reference folders in an A-Z fashion? Or do the Reference folders get stored elsewhere, separate from the active support folders? Wouldn't you want all the sub folders for the job search grouped together and not A-Z mixed with the other project sub folders?
