I've been writing for more than ten years now, and I think I've decimated every organizational system known to humankind.
I've set up elaborate filing systems that remained empty while paper continued to accumulate on my desk. I've bought plastic storage containers that ended up in the Goodwill donations box. I've tried date and time stamping, clearing my desk at the end of each workday, arranging my papers in alphabetical order, and using clips to hold random notes together. None of it worked.
