Delays and paperwork
Analyze what you need each document for. Most often, one discovers that 60% to 70% of the papers are totally unnecessary. Stop receiving the documents you do not need to receive, screen those you do receive, reduce paperwork and flow of documents to the minimum possible, do not put away or keep everything you receive, do not request what you do not need, and request in advance that which you will need. Have in mind that papers and documents have three destinies: first, the trash can; second, another person or a file; and third, but very rarely and only in cases of real need, yourself. We mentioned "file", but remember that not all of us have good filing and document retrieving skills. These skills are easy to master, and we suggest you work on them. When possible, handle each paper only once.
