Shred Now for a Smooth Start to 2022
Happy New Year!
Did you know that the early Roman calendar had only 10 months and 304 days? Over the centuries the calendar fell out of sync with the sun, and in 46 B.C. the emperor Julius Caesar solved the problem by adding 90 extra days and making January 1 the first day of the year.
Julius Caesar recognized something that needed change, consulted authorities, and fixed it. Observing his brilliant thinking and resulting actions might inspire you to prepare for the coming year by decluttering. Chances are, you’re holding onto a lot of obsolete documents, hard drives, and electronic media. Shredding them now is a great way to start the new year smoothly. Here’s why:
30% of consumers don’t shred sensitive documents before throwing them in the garbage or recycling bin. The problem with this is that their private information is at risk of being seen, stolen and used for unethical purposes. If an identity thief gets your information, or that of your customers or employees, it could cause major financial and legal havoc for you. By shredding every piece of paper and hard drive, you can be sure the information you’re responsible for won’t land in the wrong hands.
Whether in your business or home office, papers can stack up quickly, eat up valuable space, and make you feel disorganized. At the same time, active documents will be harder to find and keep organized when they are scattered among outdated and unnecessary files.
Hanging on to documents that are no longer needed also leaves you vulnerable to identity theft. Sorting through the piles and having them shredded in a one-time purge will retrieve valuable space, allow you to find documents more quickly, and leave you in a much more secure position.
Both your physical and psychological health can be improved by decluttering. Physically, those stacks of papers could be a safety hazard. They can fall and cause an injury, be tripped over or slipped on, and in a fire, more paper would increase the intensity of the fire. Psychologically, making a clean start to the new year helps create a positive morale and makes work much easier. When your attitude is healthy, your clients, co-workers, and family will take notice and may even follow your lead.
A shredding machine from the office supply store just won’t do the trick.
