Last week, I spoke to a group of HR professionals and I asked them to share a list of things that hinder their organization.
They listed things like email and phone calls, papers, and even other people.
When I asked how being disorganized made them feel, they used words like:
So of course today’s “O” is for Organization.
And organizing anything is my superpower. Yet, I’m not obsessed with it (well, not in the way most professional organizers are, anyway). I truly believe there’s a reason to get organized – like doing less well, rather than more better.
I also really don’t believe getting organized is about perfectly labeled folders and a totally clean desk. There can be creativity in chaos (but not if there’s chaos all the time).
One very easy way to tackle the big “O” is to start with your email. If you’re a Gmail user, you’re totally in luck. Techy rockstar Julie LaChance and I are hosting a workshop on January 10th to help you be a Gmail power-user. We’re calling it Gmail 101 and you’ll fast-track your way to Gmail mastery very quickly.
All the details for this January 10th workshop can be found on this page. We’re also offering a fast-action bonus if you register before this Friday (12/21/13). Please join us!
