Productive Environment Blog
Anne is a professional organizer with a beautiful spacious office. Her expertise is in residential organizing, but like many professional organizers, she did not have a system for managing paper and email. She did have some basic systems, but papers were piling up, her email inbox was overflowing and she was searching for a solution.
We worked together for just under 4 hours implementing the Productive Environment Finding System™. She learned our decision-making process and was able to determine if something needed to be Filed, Acted upon, or Tossed (File-Act-Toss System™) very quickly.
First, she was surprised at how much paper she was able to let go of (Toss); then she felt in control of her To Do list because she now had an Action system (Act) so that nothing would fall through the cracks; then we addressed the items she wanted to keep for future reference (File). She was thrilled to know that she could now find anything she filed in seconds!
I thought we were finished, but then she arrived from the next room with an entire tray full of additional paper! So we put her system to the test! She successfully processed the new piles quickly and when finished, she exclaimed “You were the missing piece!”
As a Certified Productive Environment Specialist™, I love that I can make this kind of impact even on someone who is already pretty organized! The Productive Environment Finding System™ truly is the missing piece.
