Tip # 17: Get your paperwork organised

All of us who chase big dreams tend to have a lot on our plates most of the time. We often prioritise the things that reach forward into new adventures – and leave a trail of paperwork piling up behind us: Receipts in piles on the bench, post-it notes littering our desk and in-trays bulging. Today, set some time to get your paperwork more organised.

Don’t waste any energy beating yourself up for not having kept on top of it as you went (as many of us would have promised ourselves in January or at the end of the last tax year). If you have been methodical and you are already on top of it, well done! If not, there is no time like today to start!

Choose one thing at a time: filing receipts, clearing piles on your desk, sorting through notes you have left yourself… Once you get everything up to date, try setting aside time every Friday to organise all your paperwork and clear your desk so that you have a clear picture of where you are up to, what your priorities are and a sense of being on top of things as you go into the weekend.
