I'm a pretty organized person by nature. I have lists, calendars, lists on my calendars, sticky notes, colored paperclips, colored pens/pencils/crayons, alarm notices on my phone and laptop for appointments and commitments, and databases which I seem to be collecting at an alarming rate. You see, I have this friend, Brynn Paulin, who is like the idol of all things organizational. Except when SHE organizes stuff, it makes better sense to me than when I organize my stuff.
Why is that?
Recently, I had to go to a dual agenda system. One agenda that holds personal appointments, commitments, phone numbers, insurance numbers, etc, etc, vacation plans and upcoming events. The other is strictly professional. Although I am now actually toying with the idea of getting yet another agenda to differentiate between writing plans and the other stuff I do that isn't writing. I think that may be too many. Yeah, as I think this aloud, that's too many.
So what do you do to organize and what unique tips do you have that work for you? I'm all ears.
