PROBLEM: I have a job where I need to transport files. I can’t keep track of what files are where.

SOLUTION: Choose some sort of holder for you files. It can be an according file (like in the picture) or a bag with a zipper. One goal is to choose something where the files won’t spill out when they are being transported. A second goal is to be purposeful about choosing a specific holder. By having a specific holder you always know where to look for the files that aren’t in your file cabinet. Also, you don’t have to figure out what to carry them in every time you leave your office.

HINT: If you find it difficult to return the files to the their correct spot in the filing cabinet, mark the spot with a post
it note.
