The Sex Appeal of Email

Of course I have work to do but skimming my 156 emails from yesterday has this … dare I say, sex appeal. If you Google “what is sex appeal?” wikihow.com says that “sex appeal is, by nature, almost undefinable” … then goes on to explain how it’s a “nebulous quality that draws you to someone […]

Free Your Mind from Forgetting – Agendas are Awesome!

Of course you’d expect me, a Professional Organizer, to make a statement like “agendas are awesome”. But I’m not saying that just because my agenda keeps me organized. I’m saying that because of the clarity of knowing what I’m supposed to be doing and when I’m supposed to be doing it provides me. Allow me […]

Office Decluttering – not my ideas but they’re good

Still wrestling with time management?

I Googled “Time Management” and got over 1 billion hits in less than 26 seconds so, don’t worry you’re not alone! The problem isn’t that you have a challenge but rather that you can’t talk about it at work (for many obvious reasons) or with your family or loved one’s because they probably seem used […]

Quick Organizing Facts and Links

Some editions are robust as I feel the urge to fill the four sections (Home, Office, Time and Spirit) with information, links and tips to empower individuals and teams to take back the reins on any one thing that is […]

Calendar versus Tasks

An appointment in your calendar versus a task. We use calendars so we know what we need to show up for but where do you keep track of all the tasks….. by tasks I mean the tiny action items that require time to execute but don’t necessarily get scheduled into the calendar? A task can […]

Winning at Email
