Logical and intuitive

The Introduction to the FAST Filing System is divided into four main areas
  • FILE
  • ACT
  • TOSS
In each stage you will learn, progressively how to handle all of your papers, from the note that you scribbled at the networking event, to the post-it's on your computer, to the incoming mail.  And all papers in between.

Jacqueline had lots of papers, but they weren't all from her.   She had three small children who seemed to draw all day long and bring papers home.  She didn't want to throw away her precious one's artwork, but she was running out of room to keep them all!  What should she do?  Where should all of these papers go!

Paper problems can disrupt your life

Suppose you need to find passport social security number, etc and can't find it... 
Your child applies for college - needs diplomas, transcripts and you don't know where they are... 
Your roof needs repairing - you need to find insurance documents, but you can't find them...
You need financial documents, stocks, or money, and you can't find it...
Every time Janet's husband asked for a document, she felt the old familiar unworthiness and fear bubble up in her stomach.  She had no idea where it was, and she would get that panicky feeling again because she knew she's never be able do do it.  Things she needed to do by a certain date never get done on time, past due notices were common, mail was spread out everywhere in her house, and she was miserable.  "I can't take it anymore," she screamed!
You and I were told when things got paperless it would make life easier. That just wasn't true!!  Now things just seem worse than ever!  Much worse!

There is only one solution to these problems:

You need to know how to sort and handle your papers yourself.
You need to know what to do with every paper when in it comes in the door,
You need to be able to keep everything in the right place, with a system you enjoy working with
And that's exactly what the F.A.S.T. Filing System Class will do for you!

  • You'll do it fast

  • It will be totally efficient because it's just sorting
  • You will find it easy to understand

Complete System

Of course there is more to a complete paper management system than sorting your papers... there is:
  • Gathering
  • Sorting
  • Handling Action Papers
  • Filing in a "find-able" (easily retrievable) format
In the FAST Filing System Course you will learn a (virtually) effortless system of paper organization; a system for being able to find any paper you are looking for whenever you need without stress, a system for handling all of your bills, and all of your receipts.  And best of all, it's very attractive!    (Some people won't file if their file drawer is ugly.)

We start with gathering your papers into one area, if possible.  If it's not possible we discuss alternate strategies for you in the gathering phase.

Next we sort.  But we don't just talk about sorting your papers, we go deep into the sorting process.  By class #3, all of your papers should be sorted the FAST way.

Clutter is postponed decisions.  The lack of decision-making may be the key reason why your action papers remain undone.  Of course the other reason is that you can't find them when you need to work on them.  The Action Paper phase solves both of those problems.

Filing is a breeze when you know exactly where every paper belongs, and you have a master list to help you find every paper the second you need it.

And there's more...

We go into detail about:
  • Handling your financial files
  • Handling papers that belong to others
  • Questions & Answers
And we discuss:
  • What's holding you back
  • Handling your procrastination
  • Time management 
Here is what a few students who have previously taken this class have said:

I never knew what to do with my papers so I'd bring my papers in here in and put them in a pile.  Now that doesn't happen anymore!  Karyn T., Boise MD

My biggest problem was the sheer volume of never-ending paperwork!  Thank you for making it all make sense.  Rhonda L., Pittsburgh, PA

Now (thankfully), my papers are all in the same place. This is heaven! Joyce D., Tampa, FL
