When you have a busy period, what's your "Go to"?
For some of us it's a list (or several), scheduling tasks, a diary (paper or digital), maybe sticky notes.
I am a list person. I make lists for all sorts of jobs. It may be planning an event (or even a BBQ), meeting deadlines for acquittal purposes, ensuring that people are contacted for meetings, making sure that travel itineraries are submitted on time.
Whatever your reason, having some form of reminder is helpful, especially in today's fast-paced; information overload world.
Learning how to use technology to assist you and make life easier is a must. Scheduling emails, texts and reminders can mean that your time is better utilised so that deadlines can be met, reports or documents reach the recipients on time.
You may find that a simple list, or scheduling reminders can help free up your valuable time.
A monthly planner, a few highlighters and a decent pen, plus a few minutes each week can make the difference between fluster and focus.
