The most important file in the office

It is the things-to-do file or the follow-up file. It is divided into 44 folders. The fist 31 folders are for each day of the month. The next 12 folders are for each of the 12 months.The last folder is for next year. At any time you can slot in certain item for action to be taken, say May 2nd. If you are now in the month of April, just file it under May. At the end of April all you need to do is to transfer the file to 2nd of the current month.If it it is a recurring item you will put it under next year's folder after you have taken the necessary action. By the end of the year you will put the document under May again. You can add any item at anytime at all. It is a rotating file.

I find it the most useful file. It is like the bible of the office. All you need to do is to make it a habit to refer to it every morning. With this file you don't have to remember anything but you can remember everything.
