If so, I have.
I am constantly trying to "get my sh*t together." This is the phrase I use when I feel like I have a lot going on, and I am never going to make it through my to-do list. However, I never really need to get it together - it already is. However, if you are like me - you love to organize and think of new systems to keep the things you have already organized, organized. So, instead of doing the things on the list - you instead come up with a new way of displaying your list or figuring out what to do and in what way. Such as this...
I kid around a lot and say, "I should've worked at Staples." because, honestly, who wouldn't love to work at Staples?! All them supplies and fun office things? Yes, please. Alas, my life path took me in a different direction.
After using these methods this week though - I have to admit that the sticky note/cork board idea above my monitor helps the most. I think this is because I am most often motivated by shame (...) so when someone comes into my office and sees the notes with dates on them - I feel like I have to do it; or else feel the wrath!
Another thing that I HAVE done consistently, is to keep my email inbox cleaned up. I consider it like a "to-do" list, and if there is an email in there - it needs to be done. When the task is done, or the email replied to, I file it away in some kind of folder. (*Note, the folder system needs work, but that is what Search is for.) This also helps me to feel accomplished, "Yes! Move that! Gone! Empty! TA DA!!!"
While I can't guarantee that I won't have a new organization system next week, this is OK for now, and was fun to make. :-) What do you use?
