D-A-F-T Your Way To Organized!

Like many of my readers I am sure, I’ve spent a great deal of time trying to get and stay organized. By nature, I’m one of those “a spot for everything” type of girls.

When I started my practice in 2001, staying organized, for the most part, meant keeping the papers organized. With the increase in all things digital, organization has become a bit more tricky – some things still on paper, others via e-mail and electronic files. How does one keep track of both digital and physical using one system?

That’s where I’ve always run into problems. After spending years learning from those who came before, I’ve added my own thoughts to the mix and come up with the D-A-F-T process for organization. It takes the common F-A-T (File, Act, Toss) process one step further.

I recently shared my D-A-F-T system with Technolawyer – who published it as a TechnoFeature just this past Tuesday. Although it was only published a few days ago, I’ve been contacted by several Technolawyer subscribers to thank me and let me know that D-A-F-T is already working for them.

If you’d like to review my D-A-F-T system click on the picture above for the TechnoFeature or sign up for the ezine in the upper right corner of this page to get the full ebook which packs a lot of punch in only 20 pages!

Happy Organizing!
