Tackle it Tuesday is the day to focus and power down on what you consider to be the most daunting task or overwhelming task on your maintenance task list today – this will bring a lot of momentum to the rest of your week when you complete it OR if you need more than one day to finish it you have more days and the opportunity to end the week with it being crossed of your to dos.
Let’s also focus on being organized and your “Tickler File”!
You might be asking what is a “Tickler File”?
Noun 1. tickler file – a file of memoranda or notices that remind of things to be done to be organized
The first time I heard of a “Ticker File” a potential client asked me to add them to my “Tickler File” for two weeks – I said OK! And like any good VA I researched what the heck that was – when I found out I created one right away and it has been my BEST and MOST used tool since!
This organization tool ROCKS and helps keep you from keeping it all in your head OR in 5,ooo different places on your desk!
What goes in a “Tickler File”? The items you need are:
- A 3 Ring Binder (I suggest using a FUN color or if a white one make a fun cover sheet to slide in pocket, you want it to motivate you)
- Number Dividers (1-31) (I suggest you find the fun ones, I use the rainbow colored tabbed ones)
- A pack of 3 holed punched lined paper
- A 13 Pocket Divider Pouch (I suggest a fun one or one that matches your binder)
You can usually get all your “Tickler File” materials around $35 – we are happy to create one for you and include some organization & productivity motivation and send it to you for $45 + shipping, ORDER HERE
Now that you have your Tickler File – how do you set it up and use it?
