Do you have this in your home office? http://youtu.be/6D12U7SN5k8
I put everything in the center of the desk and it must be action that day.
Or a post it on the object on what I am waiting on. I do have a action box
which lives under my bed and I empty it once a week or when it gets full,
that’s where everything goes from filing, to clean cloth’s I draw the line
tho at food or dishes. I’ve found that works for me. Have a great day
Love that text over the video for keeping score, I get distracted and miss
out cause well I do get easily distracted, and English is my second
language so when people talk fast and in words I’m not used to, then this
list is really helpful, so thumbs up for that 🙂 And great advice, I really
enjoy your videos, very inspiring!
Thanks, Lorie! It’s helpful to be reminded to designate places to manage
the inflow and outgo. I do a little of that already, but I cold be more
deliberate about it and fill in some of the gaps in the system. I like the
Hi Lorie! Please-Please-Please, could you share the label names that are on
your action trays. It will be very helpful!
Hi Canash- yes, yes, yes I can, can can! 😉 My action tray labels are:
-Travel -Bills -Urgent -Current Projects I hope that does help!
Thank you for watching and commenting, GreenwolfeESL!
Thank you for sharing your system, Jennifer. The important thing is finding
a system that works for you. It sounds like you have.
Thank you, Besta! We do add closed captions to the video and a transcript
of the video to the description a few days after it is released. Maybe that
will help as well.
Lorie, you are too awesome! Thank you for sharing – sharing is caring right
🙂 Lorie, I would just also like to ask if you could explain more about the
”Current Projects tray? Is that tray your Project Centre? Also what sort
of papers go in ”Urgent”. Then I have one area I just cant find a system
for, its for papers that require an action, I need to leave these papers in
a place until I can do them. (They don’t always have specific deadlines)
for example cards I have to enter into a database.
Current projects is my project center. For instance I am building a house
right now and the folder that has that information is in that tray. My
Urgent tray is reserved for truly urgent things. So, you have to train
yourself to look at that tray or your urgent tasks will go unnoticed.
Ooh! Thanks Lorie, love the ”Current Projects” explanation. That helps me
a huge deal 🙂 Could you please give me guidance on where to put my cards
(usually 4-5 of them) that I need to enter into a data base weekly. I
usually have a week to capture them. Last question! Much Love <3
You could make a tray for those cards or a folder on your Current Projects
tray, since the data entry is an on going current project.
Thanks Lorie! Love the idea of putting them into my Current Projects tray.
You make such a remarkable difference in people’s lives. Be blessed!
Thank you for saying that, Canash! Let me know how your trays work out!!
Lorie, I have another question relating to the one I asked. Okay, so I put
the cards I need to enter into data base in a folder under ”current
projects” I have time to enter the cards from Tuesday to Friday – Friday
the cards must be entered. Do I put the task: ”enter visitors cards” into
my diary on Tues, Wed, Thurs and Fri. How do I remember to enter the cards?
I don’t always look in the trays. Please help Lorie. Appreciate you.
Hi Canash, that’s really going to depend on your style. What is going to
get your attention and remind you until it becomes a habit? An electronic
reminder tied to your calendar? A task that is always listed on your task
list? What type of reminder works for you?
I think I lean more towards adding it as an task! Thank you lovely lady 🙂
