I can’t tell you how many times I see people sorting through paperwork and keeping items without even reading them! How do you know you need to keep it if you haven’t even read it? Just because it is from someone important doesn’t mean you automatically need to keep it. READ IT– what does it say? What purpose does it serve? Will you actually refer to it later? Is it really informative and important? A great example are manuals– are you keeping manuals for things you already know how to use– or better yet don’t even have anymore?
Today make it a point to fully read everything you keep and/or file.
