Tip 45. Use the same system to store and access your information.

How many different systems do you use to store information?

You may be using Windows Explorer, Google Drive, OneDrive, Evernote, a shared drive, e-mail, voice mail, a smartphone, appointment book, file drawer, and on and on and on. Unfortunately, most people use between six to eight different systems for storing information. Many use a different system for each piece of technology. That’s reinventing the wheel just a few too many times, isn’t it?

By using the same information storage system model everywhere, when you file something or look for something no matter where it is, you’ll always be able to find it.

Start counting all the different systems you use. You might be surprised at how many you are using.

One is the loneliest number—but sometimes that’s good.
