I just read the guest blog about bringing cupcakes. It was excellent! I too have just posted on my own blog, a short piece about my personal time management method. (I am trying very hard to post weekly as a marketing goal for 2012.) Here’s an excerpt:
At the beginning of every week, I take a piece of paper out of my printer and fold it into thirds and again into half. I then have 6 squares. Five are labeled Monday through Friday with their respective calendar dates, and the sixth is where I put a list of job tasks that have to be worked on that week.
I then prioritize those in order of how soon they’re due by numbering them. Then I look in my day planner for meetings, deadlines, etc. and write them down with their hour times in the appropriate day box.
I include things like when I’m going to go to the Y and anything else that is important (like a doctor’s appointment). I now have the whole week spread out in front of me and I can see at a glance how much work time I have (provided I don’t goof off playing Minesweeper and reading blogs).
As things come up, I erase and revise. Easy peasy. Takes about five minutes, nothing to install and it never crashes.
Anyone else still using paper?
