Get organised, stay organised
Yesterday’s entry reminded me of a photo that I’d taken when visiting Boston in 2008. The problem was… I couldn’t find it. Back in 2008, I hadn’t developed any sort of workflow or filing system. In fact, my filing was chaotic. I had different file types in separate folders, no naming convention, duplicate copies of some files, some files missing completely.
In the end, my wife helped me to find the photo. Otherwise, this entry wouldn’t have happened. And I wouldn’t have realised quite how messy my old files are.
I don’t think this would happen with my new workflow – although I can’t be 100% sure.
