Day 8 – Burning the Bridges

by Dan

The inspiration for today’s Daily Act of Simplification can be read in my previous post. As mentioned, a process improvement at work has generated efficiencies within my team. Today’s task is about burning the bridges that lead back to the old way of doing things. Now that the new process is embedded, there is no more need for the email folders that we used to use to store items “To Be Logged”. All the time they remain, a creep back to the old less efficient way could occur. By deleting the folders, I can burn the bridges to the past, and simplify the shared email inbox. While I was at it I found a couple of other unused folders, so they were deleted as well!
