Because I’m generally so organized otherwise (and had tried countless “systems” to keep papers under control) I assumed that this was some mental miswiring that I wasn’t going to overcome. Then I found a system that seriously worked. It’s going on a few years, but I am still using and recommending the JOYS filing system. In fact, I’m now evaluating their tickler system for my husband. The point is: it’s a matter of finding what works for you.
