INTRODUCING THE GO SYSTEM



I’m kicking off GO Month with my GO System Webinar Lunch and Learn series.

GO stands for Getting Organized. January 2010 will mark the sixth year of NAPO sponsoring Get Organized (GO) Month. GO Month is dedicated to raising awareness of the benefits of getting organized and of hiring a NAPO professional organizer.

The GO System is a training course that focuses on workplace productivity. This course is for those of you who have “had enough” in terms of workplace stress, long hours and unproductive workdays…and are seriously ready to get more focused, organized and productive. The GO System addresses seven major issues that help significantly improve personal and workplace results including:
1. Establishing strong foundational habits
2. Processing incoming items
3. Prioritizing
4. Using time rationally
5. Effectively managing projects
6. Understanding personality issues
7. Understanding psychological issues

The bottom line – you’ll get more done!

Many people offer the following advice: They tell you to, “Work smarter…not harder! Few of these people offer any specific, solid, practical or proven suggestions on how to do this.

The GO System addresses 14 specific issues, ideas and strategies to help you learn to work smarter, not harder. People often say, “If I get one good idea from a training course it will be worth my time and money.” You will experience and enjoy at least 14 major takeaways from the GO System course.

You'll be able to:
Ensure that time spent at work is quality, productive time
Decrease productivity-killing stress and anxiety
Improve your ability to follow up and follow through on assignments
Improve your ability to quickly recover from unexpected interruptions
Increase your contribution to the bottom-line results of your organization

The GO System course content is unique, interesting, relevant, easy-to-understand and easy-to implement. Researchers have determined time and time again that people pay attention to, and remember, things that are novel, interesting, relevant to their particular situation and clearly presented.

Now, more than any other time you need to be demonstrating that you are organized, productive, and highly effective either in your workplace, to your customers, for your family, and for yourself.

Permission is the Key

Recently I was asked, "When did you find your voice and how do you help your clients find their voice?"  What powerful questions!  I thought about how to answer those two questions for weeks.  Tomorrow is the anniversary of the day Vera Katz, former Mayor of Portland declared June 14th John Mosser Day. John was my father.  I know the answer to both questions.

I found my voice on August 21, 1996.  My father was in a coma and dying.  I couldn't stand to hear his labored breathing.  I leaned over him and said, "Dad it is okay to let go, forget the car keys* and leave.  We'll be okay."  He opened his eyes, looked into mine, and breathed his last breaths.  It was my voice, my permission, that released him.

*Every morning my father would leave the house, walk to his car, get in his car, get out of his car, and walk back to the house for his keys.  Sometimes it was multiple trips back and forth between the car and the house for his hat, briefcase, coat, but always f…
