5B) PAPER TIGER FILING. One of my favorite office organizing tools is Paper Tiger (http://www.FindInFiveSeconds.com). I use this tool both in my home and work office.
This is my library. It is on the opposite wall from my technology space. One thing that surprises many people that come into my office is how I have my material arranged on the shelf. It is not alphabetical by author or title. Each shelf holds a topic – marketing and PR, organizing, productivity and time management, self-development, etc. I often forget titles and authors, so organizing by either of those methods, would make it hard for me to find what I’m looking for. I’m visual, so I can go to my time management shelf and know that the orange book holds what I’m looking for.
