Ever pass an auto pile up on a major highway? Usually it starts when one vehicle hits another and then it snowballs until the whole highway is locked down. The same thing happens to our desks. One or two papers are left out. Then a pile-up begins. Then the pile overflows. Finding things becomes impossible and your work at that station gets completely bogged down. How do we avoid pile-ups? Stop the auto pile-up with defensive driving techniques and alertness for obstacles on the road. Stop the desk pile ups with having a plan in place for the incoming paper and sticking to it. Set up those action files and make them work! Stop paper pile-up now!
