Are you a paperwork warrior or a prisoner of paperwork? The golden rule of many time management experts is “only handle a piece of paper one time.” Once you lay your hands on a piece of paper, you must quickly decide right then and there whether to toss that paper, file it, or pass it off to someone else.
This rule has always been a challenge for me. First, when I do make a quick decision in regards to paperwork, I usually wind up rifling through my wastebasket. Secondly, I’ve never been able to figure out to whom I’m suppose to be passing my paperwork. None of my colleagues want it. They have their own!
So how about you? What are your best tips for dealing with paperwork? I’m guessing you’ll see lots more paperwork before the school year ends!
Thinking of you!
