Tuesday Tidbit – 18 on the Eighteenth

18 on the Eighteenth outtaspaceorganizing.comAs a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) there is access to all sorts of useful information. Since today is the 18th, it is an ideal time to  remind you that a 4-drawer file cabinet holds 18,000 sheets of paper!

Just think about that for a moment. The 80/20 Rule, often referred to as the Pareto Principle, suggests  we only look at 20% of what we file. That means roughly 14,400 sheets of paper have been filed and will never see the light of day again.

Moving forward, be ruthless when you file, and if you need my help to handle the backlog, let’s start the conversation by calling or emailing me.
