Our digital world can sometimes be a reflection of your physical world. The way we have organized (or don’t organize) our papers can be reflected in how our files are organized (or not organized) on our computers.
It is much easier to accumulate information on our computers because we don’t see the “piles” anymore. The new prompt is when your computer informs you that you have run out of storage. You can clean it up, or buy more cloud storage. We both know which is the quicker, easier choice.
I had a computer scare last month when my iMac decided it was full. I went through and deleted lots of files and I’m committed to continuing to clear out. What I didn’t realize was that I had a few ‘previous system’ folders which I no longer needed. There were applications that no longer worked with my current system and files that could no longer be opened on my computer. I also moved big video files to an external hard drive. Thankfully, my iMac is now functioning again:)
