If you want to start organizing your personal life, filing is a great place to start. If you don't already have a filing system set up the task can be daunting, but in my opinion it's worth it and much better then having piles of paper around your house.
Once you have your personal filing set up you can look at moving on to bigger projects like maybe your business. You want to organize your belongings one step at a time because you don't want to bite off more then you can chew and become overwhelmed by the process. The other problem is, when you bite off more then you can chew you just want to get it done and you don't take the time to go through your things thoroughly and you run the risk of tossing something you need or want, so don't rush, enjoy the process.
I have one very important piece of information I need to share with you....once you have your filing system all set up, don't start that pile of paper again! When you get papers that need to be filed go to your filing system and get those bad boys in their assigned folder right away! After you've done the initial organization, the hard work, staying organized is so much easier.
Happy Organizing!!! I would love to hear about an organization project you've done lately.
