Q: Denise, I went to my local office supply store and created the filing system for my clients and business expenses that you mentioned two weeks ago (Ask Denise: Portable Filing System). But my challenge is making sure I use it and keep it up! This is not natural for me. What do you suggest?
A: Good job! My recommendation is to either take care of this during your Hour of Power – just a few minutes every day or give yourself a goal to have it done by a certain time each week. That will give you the flexibility to adjust your schedule as needed and get the task done when you are in the mood to do it. Don’t let it go for more than a week or else it will become a daunting task to catch up — and one that you will avoid!
