Chapter 6. Managing Your Desk and Your Papers > Out of Sight is Out of Mind

Out of Sight is Out of Mind

Every document needs a place where it will not be forgotten until the work it represents is completed. So far, you have not filed anything that you are presently working with. Because out of sight often does equal out of mind, much of what remains on your desk is in process in some way. The trick is to put it away, be able to find it again and not forget the next action step. The way to remember is to write things down. If you are likely to forget the next step you must take, then write yourself a note—no, not on a little piece of paper. There are only three places to make these notations:

  1. On Your Calendar

  2. On Your To-Do List

  3. On Your Master List
