I walk around my offices and all I see is paper!!! What are we doing with all this paper?
How much am I paying for all this paper? The paper, the toner, printer and copier maintenance, the cost of the copier leases, paper cuts, paper jams — here we go … one more costly call to my IT consultant.
Hold the phone! I’m paying to store all my obsolete paper in a paper storage facility. Then I send someone over to pick up my paper and bring it back to me. And I just bought another server to store all my files. Am I nuts? Now there is a business I’d like to get in to. File cabinets, lost floor space – I could have held off on leasing extra office space if I had rid myself of all these cabinets.
What if I lost all my paper? Would I ever miss it?
Oh, and here’s the best part … I get back to my desk and see stacks of paper that I haven’t touched in 3 months (sitting on top of my personal file cabinets filled with paper I haven’t touched in 3 years).
