The RAFT System

A common question in forums and a common topic in articles is how to work more efficiently. The “getting things done” mantra. All kinds of software and technology are recommended to help people organize.

Many years ago I learned a simple system for staying afloat. The RAFT system. With any kind of incoming information or task there are only four simple steps to remember.

  • Route the object to the correct person.
  • Act on the object.
  • File the object.
  • Trash the object.

The system has worked rather well for me.

My memory is fallible. Sometimes I jumble the RAFT acronym into something more easily remembered by 10 year old children on a camping trip.
