Perfect Timing: Proven tips for Creating and Reorganising Filing Systems
Divide and conquer
Separate the many aspects of a project into smaller parts and you'll make the job less intimidating and easier to finish on time.
For example: Designing a new filing system. Divide the files into sections, perhaps by customer for clients; chronologically for finance; by subject group for management and by number for specific projects and, finish each section before moving onto another part of the registry.
Establish a plan of attack
Proceeding headlong without preparation is a sure recipe for disaster.
Before beginning a project, write down all the things you need to accomplish. This will provide a tangible blueprint you can follow in completing the assignment on time.
Put all the elements in place
After you've gathered your thoughts, gather all the things you will need to finish the project.
For instance, will you need to print files? What types of information are critical on the file folder; will any information need to be recorded on the file; how long will you need to keep the records in the file for? Are you going to use a clip to secure the paper, do you want the folder supplied with the clip fitted?
Sure, you're working on several things at once, however meeting deadlines means placing emphasis on the aspects of a project that will require the most time and most attention.
For example, if creating the indexing structure for your registry will take more time than any other part of the project, you need to begin working on the language right away.
Proceed with caution
Yes, the deadline is tight, but rushing carelessly and making mistakes will only cost you more time doing things over. Staying focused is one of the best ways to stay on schedule when you're up against a tight deadline.
