This is going to be a different kind of post in the GTD Mastery series. Today, I’m asking our readers to help me with:
Step 15 to GTD Mastery: I have a paper file system which is fun and fast to use, perhaps using an automatic labeler.
That’s right. I don’t have a filing cabinet or an automatic labeler (waits for the gasps of horror to subside). I don’t have any significant volume of incoming paper in my life right now. Any physical paper items (e.g. newpaper articles and receipts) that I want to keep for reference are scanned and uploaded to my server and backed up. I have all my bank statements sent online and have setup online bill payments. I’ve kept a 3-ring binder for my each of my courses over the years and they are put in storage bins upon completion or thrown out.
Nevertheless, I foresee a need for a filing system in the future. I’d like to implement it before classes start again this Monday. I’d appreciate any recommendations and user experiences with your filing cabinet and labeler of choice.
