All this talk about notebooks (“My Favourite Organising Tools #1 – Notebooks” and “The Evil and Catch-All Notebooks“) got me thinking…I have my planner for my personal stuff and my bils and appointments – but what about work?
I have so many tasks to keep track of at work. My inbox serves as a sort of urgent to-do list, but I also have a list of regular things to do every day, and then some specifics things for certain days of the week. Then I have things to do on the first and fifteenth of the month – ACK! How can I keep it all organized?
Well, here it is; Eva’s Big Work Planner!
It’s a large binder that lies flat on my desk. I’ve divided up into Monday through Friday, 1st, 15th, and a section for blog notes and ideas, with colorful plastic dividers that have a pocket in them for discs and miscellaneous stuff.
For each section/day I have made a to-do list and placed it in a plastic page protector so I can use a wipe-off marker to cross things off as I do them. I placed the page so it faces me from the left side of the binder so I can have paper for notes on the right.
Then for any out of the ordinary type reminders or to-do’s, I have my trusty sticky notes. If I don’t complete those on any given day, I can move them to the next. Or if I know I have something like a conference call on Thursday, I’ll just put a sticky note on Thursday’s page to remind me.[LG]Here’s another great organizing idea![/LG]
So far it’s working great!!
Any more inspiring notebooks out there?
