4. Design a Personalized Filing System
There's no right or wrong when it comes to developing a filing system, as long as it matches the way you work and is easily maintained. You can file alphabetically, by project, by client or some other method.
Use the same method for electronic document filing as you do for paper. Regularly sort, file and purge electronic and hard copy documents to keep clutter from piling up.
Keep the most recent documents at the front of the file for ready access, and make sure to check your company's records-retention policy to ensure you're not throwing out vital records.
