Found myself commenting on another blog about how to manage paper and thought readers might like to know the St system, which is pretty effective if you follow it carefully.
Anyone wishing to change their attitude to paper should follow the four Ds of:
Do it (urgent and important paper which should be actioned then filed)
Diary it (non-urgent yet important paper which should be filed until actioned)
Delegate it (urgent yet non-important paper which should be given to someone else to action)
Dump it (non-urgent and non-important paper which should be put in the recycling bin once paper clips, staples and bits of plastic have been removed).
