4. The art and science of filing things; how to become strangely enthusiastic about getting our stuff sorted

Gone are the days of filing clerks. Technology has enabled self-sufficiency. As we drown in raw data and battle to own our time how can we organise our information and data so it’s quick and easy to find when we need it?

As I listen to Col Fink, business advisor, leadership trainer, public speaking coach and tribe builder talk about why he became strangely enthusiastic about filing things I discover how strangely fascinating – and easy - it can be.

Hi, I’m Julie Hood, and welcome to my podcast TimePeace.

It has been created in honour of my dad, a watchmaker who spent a lifetime restoring people’s time, by his daughter who for many years felt there was never quite enough of it - until she learned there was.

It took longer to get to that place than I thought and like all change it was challenging. When I look back, I wish I’d rescued her sooner.

I now teach others what I’ve learned, and continue to learn, in the hope their time can be restored. These podcast conversations are part of that.

Because in a world that seems obsessed with speed there is no better time to learn to make haste more slowly than now.
