Organization - suggestions please

I've decided to get a bit more organized in my life.

Tomorrow I'm going to go to Office Max, or someplace similar, and find a very in depth day planner kind of thing. I have considered online things and/or doing more organizing on the cpu, but I'm a person who needs something a little more tangible. I've considered electronic organizers and such, but I think for now I will start here.


It's amazing how time goes by.

I really don't have a specific question, but any tips or advice relating to time management/organization would be welcome. Especially in regards to planning how one should spend time (especially how one should plan a day's activities) , and things like that.



thanks

spending less time online on message boards usually helps you get stuff done.

Those sites have lots of tips on organization and some other things too. Based on the system you may want to try a hipster PDA (a paper PDA). http://www.43folders.com/2004/09/03/...e-hipster-pda/

You would probably get all your stuff done quicker if you didn´t spend so much time deciding what to buy to be more organised.

step one - get away from the computer
step 2 - find a pice of paper and a pen
step 3 - use the pen to make a to-do list on the piece of paper
step 4 - set out doing the things on the list you made in step 3

Getting a planner is a great start...but make sure you actually use it! For example, my boss is very good about entering all of his meetings, etc. into the schedule function of our database...but he isn't very good about remembering to check it to see what he has planned for the day. I always give him a Post-It the day before with all of tomorrow's activities written on it, just to be safe. On Fridays, I'll send him an email to remind him of stuff for Monday.

So, in summary, when you make entries into your planner...make sure that you check your planner at the end of the day to see what's cooking for tomorrow.

I hate step 4

Come up with categories/criteria and then sort your stuff according to them.

I also must confess I thought of Monica Geller.
