What Helps To Keep You On Track At Work?
Admittedly, my job is a bit different than yours. I mean, probably.
I get up really early (some of you do that too, I know), and in that first hour or so, my brain isn't much more than a fog. So I gotta be prepared, you dig? The more I can do beforehand, the more I can just get through the very very start of the day on autopilot.
I've had some changes to what I do at work here over the past year, and I've found that I've had to completely rehaul the way I do my work. It got me thinking about how everybody else gets stuff done. I'm a little bit OCD about work. For some reason, I need my things to be pretty strictly compartmentalized so that I can be sure I get everything done. I'm sure some of it could be blamed on the fact that I have MS and so I double check myself constantly so as not to forget anything.
I've got a planner book type thing with papers upon papers and notes upon notes so that I remember what I'm doing, what I've done, and what I've got to do. I write everything down and there are....so many post-it notes, you guys. So many.
And I've also decided that my office space should have a little more... life to it than it already has. So, meet Joon.
Well, that's my nickname for my Banzai Tree. He's joining Steve in the office, and so far, he's doing a great job.
So it got me to thinking: what about you guys? Do you feel like you're organized when it comes to your work routine? Or do you like to tackle things differently every day?
