Wouldn't it be great if you could solve all your filing problems? Increase the productivity of yourself and/or your employees? This is supposed to be the information age, in which companies and individuals are supposed to profit and improve through the acquisition and use of information. But if you can't find it, what good is it? Information about a competitor can't help you if you can't find it. Information about an investment can't make you money if you can't find it. Information about a procedure or a piece of equipment used in your business can't help you if you can't find it. Information can't help you at tax or heaven forbid audit time if you can't find it. Even the information in this book can't help you if you can't find it!
This book is a magic lamp. Read it, then apply the information I've given you and out pops the magic genie that solves all the problems we've been talking about. That magic genie is the ultimate filing system. The three wishes it'll grant you are:
1: To never again have to spend time deciding where to file something. 2: To be able to determine whether or not a file already exists for something. 3: To be able to find anything in your file system instantly.
Unlike most modern genies this one is very versatile in that it can work with or without a computer. It will work a little faster and more efficiently with one though.
I used to sell a data base program to use for this filing system. After playing with the use of this system using other programs I stopped selling the data base.
You can use any program that has a search function as the computer base for this filing system. Pick your favorite word processor, desktop publishing, spreadsheet, or database program. As long as it has a way to do word or text searches,you can use it with this system. Just put the file numbers in along with whatever descriptions you decide on. Play around a little to find the format you prefer.
