The Joy of Shredding

If like me you are a bit of a pack-rat, take heart.

Buy a powerful cross-cut shredder that can take seven sheets of paper at a time and doesn’t flinch at staples.

Then shred stale documents.

Think about it

How often, really, do you re-read the penciled notes you made four years ago?

That’s right. NEVER.

Start small. Find a folder with notes of a client who was reluctant to pay the invoices after the work was done.

You wouldn’t miss them, would you?

I thought not.


I promise you this: Once the last sheet is gone and the hanging folder returned to the pool, you’ll feel so good that you’ll walk across the street and treat yourself to a sit-down cappuccino and a chocolate-chip cookie.
