The challenge for this client was finding a way to manage the volume of incoming and outgoing paper and electronic information. He needed help setting up a file management system, advice on how to handle reference material, and some guidance on time/task management to help him prioritize his day.
We sorted through the piles on and around his desk, purged anything that was not essential, and created an easy-to-use and maintain file management system. We provided organizing and productivity tips for him to manage the information being received via email. We helped set up a task list and provided him with techniques to prioritize to-dos.
He now has the tools to help him get through his work day without frustration. He has a clear system for processing incoming and outgoing paper and electronic files, and knows exactly where all categories of information should go. He can efficiently manage his emails and make sure his inbox is empty at the end of every day.
