The Midden Approach

The horizontal file pile was recently rehabilitated in an on-line presentation by a software guy. I forget the general principle he quoted, but the basic message was that the stuff on top of the pile is in the optimal place for being used again.

I decided to conceptualize paperwork as information housekeeping. Much to my surprise, the teetering stacks and complex contents of my high school home study desk have turned out to be productive and relaxing to work with. I just pick my way down the midden one thing at a time. I was relieved to discover that a month-old backlog looks no different from three years of delay -30-
