I’m not a terribly disorganized person…but I’m not exactly the most organized girl on the block, either. (Hey oh, piles in the closets and forgotten doctors appointments!)
As I try to manage freelance assignments, keep the house in somewhat livable condition, raise two little dudes, maintain this blog, and support Jonny in his ministry, the whole use-my-mind-as-a-planner thing isn’t quite working.
In college, I used a planner religiously. As a magazine staff writer, my calendar was everything. As a newspaper reporter, hourly deadlines kept me in order.
I have scraps of paper planning things and I have lots of things that I want to get done swimming around in my mind that often get misplaced and forgotten. I use Google calendar (synced with Jonny) on my iPhone, which helps kind of, but…I need help.
So, organized people of the Internet — share your secrets with me.
And I don’t want any magazine-style tips or tricks — I want tried-and-true, real-life help for getting my stuff together.
