You’ll waste time scrolling up and down your e-mail inbox trying to find the one message with a needed phone number. You’ll ask someone to resend you information (for the third time) that you just can’t find. Or, you’ll just … forget about it entirely. And all the while, the ghost of Taiichi Ohno is shaking his head at the colossal waste of it all. The second tray is the outbox. This tray holds anything that you need to send out—signed papers, reviewed documents, letters, CDs, and so on. By keeping it in a clearly segregated place, you ensure that these items don’t get lost in a pile of documents that you might be working on.
That’s the first step. The Lean gurus define this purging process as “sorting”—as in, sorting the garbage from the value. I prefer to think of it as common sense. There’s no point in paying rent on the square footage occupied by cabinets jammed with files inherited from your predecessor three years ago—files you’ve never looked at. There’s no point in creating files for all that useless paper. That would be tantamount to alphabetizing your garbage, and that’s pure waste. So, get a dumpster and toss all the detritus that has accumulated over the years—really.
3 Time-tracking log. easy, of course, because we’re all terrible observers of ourselves. But assuming that you don’t have piles of money to pay people to watch you work, you can at least log what you do during the day and how long you spend doing it. I know that the prospect of maintaining a daily activity log for a week or so is probably about as appealing as treating a raging case of scabies, but it is a great way to get a handle on the value-added work, incidental work, and waste in your day.
