ORGANIZING TIP FROM PINK MONKEY: USE "RAFT" TO KEEP YOUR DESK FREE OF CLUTTER


 Here's an acronym to keep your desk functioning as a work space, not a storage space.

Go through mail daily. This prevents paper pile-up.

Use the RAFT acronym for dealing with incoming paper.

R = Refer it to someone else (your spouse, your co-worker, etc.).

A= Take action on it. Pay the bill, make the phone call.

F = File it.

T = Toss/Recycle it.
