5 Ways To Get Your Day Organized

We had a meeting this morning and one of the things we discussed was how to best utilize our day. We have so many little things that need to be done it’s sometimes hard to remember it all. So we talked about how to get organized. I decided this is probably a problem for everyone not just us, so here are a few ways to help you get it together and maybe have a little extra time left at the end of the day to just breathe!

Smart Phone



Until a few months ago I still had a flip-phone which has a calendar but it’s not quite as fancy as the new i-phones which can make dinner for you if you want it to. The new phones have many apps you can download to keep you organized from a simple calendar to elaborate task managers with alarms to remind you of events and meetings.

Outlook Express Calendar



I have to admit I don’t use this because I forget it’s there and I’m not real computer savvy as it is. But you can organize your day, week even your month with this calendar. We have meetings on Tuesday mornings and mine has a reminder that it sends me, only I didn’t set it up, our manager did. He has it scheduled to pop up on all of our computers about 15 minutes before the meeting. This is a great tool if you know how to use it.

Post-It Notes



This is what my office looks like. Full of post-it notes. It may not look organized to some but I know where everything is; from phone numbers to websites to messages and things I have to get done. It’s kind of an organized chaos, if you will. I love Post-It notes and now they make them in larger notebook sizes not just those small little squares, although those are the ones I use most. Everyone in the office makes fun of me but these little pieces of paper keep my day in order.

To-do List



If there’s a lot to do in one day I will usually write it down on a legal pad or my ‘To-Do’ list. Like right now I have notes for more blogs, things I need to post on Facebook, a reminder to listen to particular songs from music promoters, some upcoming events I need to prepare for and so on. It’s hard to beat a ‘To-Do’ list, unless you don’t have pen and paper handy.

The Calendar around here is the KING. We couldn’t function with out a calendar. I have one in my office, Rudy has a duplicate in his office, we have one in our control room and they all say the same thing….where we have to be on the weekends. Live broadcasts are usually scheduled on the weekends and sometimes there are 2 or 3 and we have to make sure we aren’t crossing over one another and that we are at the right place at the right time. Not only that but we have to make sure interviews with guests are scheduled similarly. You don’t want 2 people here at the same time and try to rush through one to get to another. Oh, I also have a calendar in my purse to keep up with not only work but personal appointments as well. With all of my doctors appointments this year my calendar has had a pretty good workout. Of all forms of organization this is my “go to”!
