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.

The A-List Way to Organize Photos (photo courtesy of unsplash.com)
Summer months are filled with special events such as graduations, weddings, and vacations.  That means lots of photos!  Nowadays, we capture these moments digitally.  But, for many of us, we have decades of printed photos waiting to be organized and preserved.  I have heard clients say they want to organize their printed photos but the task seems so overwhelming they just can't imagine where or how to begin.  I approach all organizing projects with my 5-steps to organizing® process.  Follow along as I take you through those steps to organize your printed photos.

Step 1: Strategize - How to Begin
What are your goals? Why do you want to organize your photos?Do you want to create memory books for your children?Do you want to relive a special trip or event?Do you want to know what you have?How do you want to keep your photos?

Fall - A Time for Letting Go

The season has shifted and we are “officially” in fall.  When I think about the seasons and how they relate to organizing activities fall is about letting go.  Take a look outside, the leaves have turned to shades of golden and red hues and little by little each one is letting go.  This is a necessary process for trees to grow and become stronger.

The same can be said for our stuff.  When we hold on to stuff that isn’t serving us today we can’t easily experience personal growth because we stay stuck in our past or live in the futurejust in case we might need it someday.  Maybe we can’t let go because we have difficulty deciding what to do with something.  Perhaps our ADHD keeps us from focusing on organizing because it’s mundane. 

Whatever the reason is that you are holding on to stuff, I invite you to think about falling back into organizing habits that may have gone by the wayside. Take a cue from nature and let go.  Give yourself permissionto let g…

Winter - A Time for Reflection

New Year's Day 2015

December 28, 2016
January 1st marks a time for us to reflect on what we did or didn't accomplish the past twelve months, on how our priorities have shifted, and set aside time to decide our vision for the new year.  It is also a time to get a new calendar, refill a planner, set goals for the next twelve months, or maybe create new habits.

Over the many decades I have been an adult I have used various tools for time management, goal setting, task tracking, list making, capturing ideas, and project planning. I have flipped back and forth from paper planner, to computer calendar, to apps, back to paper and the cycle repeats.

Clients often ask me, "Does the perfect planner exist?"

Well.... I think I may have found it... at least for me. Why? Because it isn't perfect, it can be messy and organic, and it can be the way my brain works.  The way I think, the way I see time, the way I keep track of tasks AND it can be both paper and di…
