Sometimes, we just have to tip our hat to other bloggers that have excellent articles they have published on tips and tricks for going paperless.. This one is about a flowchart on how to go paperless!
Going paperless is not easy or trivial. It is a hard choice! This is why when we find easy to follow charts, we display them, so others can see, adapt and adopt.
This time we would like to mention Jamie Rubin an Evernote Ambassador who published his own process flowchart for going paperless at the Evernote blog post dated November 28, 2011 .
One of the challenges he wanted to address:
To prove that a paperless office isn’t some pie-in-the-sky dream. For years I’ve heard that we are moving toward a paperless office — but when push comes to shove, people seem hesitant to go paperless. I decided that I was going to see for myself whether a paperless office was really possible. There is a bit of a time investment getting started, but I have to say that having been paperless now for nearly a year, the time it has saved me in searching through piles, and the convenience it has added has more than made up for that initial time investment.
At his own post, Jamie has a great collection of Going Paperless articles where he publishes his best practices and tips! Thank you Jamie!
