“Bottom line is, if you do not use it or need it, it’s clutter, and it needs to go.”

This week’s Weekly Planning Hack gets you to take a few minutes to archive materials that no longer are relevant. Whether it’s digital or hard-copy, being able to archive and/or delete information can be key to focus, prioritization and clarity.
As I wrote in Teams365 Check It Off Tip:
“While it might seem like adding time that you don't have, clearing things off and out, like your desk, or inbox, on a regular basis can create the space for new energy and clarity. What needs to get cleared in your office right now? Is it your inbox, old files? Take 15 minutes today to clear something and notice what new is created as a result of this.”
Even businesses will have different sets of legislation outlining how long materials need to be kept for. Spend some time checking with your local level government how long you need to keep materials for. Sometimes this may be for a period of five or seven years. Check it out.
Things that you might consider archiving include:
What else could be archived? What could be converted from analog to digital?
Again, be sure to check perhaps with your local small business center in relation to what your local level requirements are for keeping materials and files.
Enjoy the conversation!
