20. Efficiency top tip – use a Tickler system!

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Get into the habit of using a file that has a section for each day and you're less likely to forget the things that need to be done on a certain day/date. Set yourself a reminder!

Some people call them 'Bring Forward' files, others refer to them as a 'Tickler System' (to tickle the memory). For a very small cost you can have an expanding file that has a compartment for each day (1 – 31) which is used on a rolling month to month basis. As an alternative to your 'Pending' tray, papers for a meeting to be held on (say) the 11th of the month can be stored in that compartment of the file – removing it from your pending tray. Using this method can completely clear your desk of paperwork! (Don't forget to set a reminder to check it each day though...!)
