Remember, ‘could be useful’ isn’t the same thing as ‘is used.’ If you haven’t used these notes for a couple of years, consider that they may never find a use. Unless the notes are from primary research (the answers to questionnaires or surveys or notes from interviews), could you find the information online?
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Sort through your files or any stack of papers for ten-minutes.
