The importance of updating files
One of the simplest and most overlooked aspects of being organized is getting your computer files organized.It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, especially when you forget that most people don’t use their computers like us crazy systems-people do.
Your desktop is supposed to be clean and display that gorgeous high-resolution wallpaper you’ve got going on.In general, only create new folders (especially top-level folders in /documents) if you find yourself repeatedly coming back to save similar files in the same place, only to find that it doesn’t exist yet. To borrow a bit of pop-psychology, there are 3 main things you have to know: chunking up, chunking down, and chunking sideways.Start with the assumption that everything fits into a category or hierarchy of similar things. At the top, we have a category that encompasses all Apple products.Hopefully, you’re someone who has already made the switch to going paperless.The advantage of the original paper-based cabinets was that you really had to think about where to put documents so that they could be easily located when they were needed.
