I bet you thought I forgot - and to be honest, I almost did. :) It's time for the October Writing Challenge!
I've started using a new system to track my work. Here's a picture:
This highly complex and technology-driven system is called "Post-It Notes on the Bedroom Wall."
The blue note at the top says "October" on it. That's in case I forget what month it is. Hey, could happen ...
The pink note on the left says, "Coming Soon." These are the projects I will be doing that haven't hit my desk yet.
The pink note in the center says, "Working On Now." Yep - these are things I'm working on now. They're almost done.
The pink note on the right says "Done." As each thing is done, I move the green note with the project written on it over to that column.
So this is how I've been tracking my projects for the last couple of months, and it's working really well. It helps me keep priorities straight and to know where I am with each task.
Obviously, my October goal is to get all the notes moved from the left, to the center, and then to the right. When I've done that, I'll have hit all my goals.
What are your goals for this month? Sign up for the challenge by leaving a comment in the trail, and tell me what you want to accomplish this month. We'll do it together!
