Decluttering and organising digital documents

November 2020


I recently sorted and organised every single digital document I own. I expected it to take me days of staring in mild agitation at my screen, as I wrestled with thousands of little yellow folders.


Surprisingly, it only took me about half a day to complete, and by the end of it I’d renamed, removed and reassigned almost all of the documents stored in my cloud.  I now know exactly what documents I own, which folders to find them in and where to allocate new files. It was a hugely satisfying achievement that still feels absolutely wonderful!
