As the manager of this blog, I should be more organized. I spend my days working on a variety of website design, social media, and blog work for clients, and my desk often ends up cluttered with sticky notes, bits of paper, and a filled to-do list. While discussing this with my BFF the other day, she sent me this link which described the most awesome organizational method ever: The 43 Folder Method.
I’ll let this video from OfficeArrow.com, and the link above explain the rest. Below, you can see a picture of my own system (I tend to recycle folders, though one day I’d like to have pretty ones for this) and see some of my thoughts.
You can see that next folder for me is 21, because Monday is August 21st and I have already finished my Friday, August 18th folder. I also added small sticky notes with the day of the week. These get moved along from one folder to the next.
I love this method because it allows me to even assign myself future tasks: read this article, file this stuff, work on this project, etc.
I can get all the paper off my desk and know that I won’t forget about it in the future. So far it’s greatly helped me to stay organized! Consider it for your home office, your work office, or even just life!
