Welcome to Week #34 of my 52 Paper Crafting Organization Tips and StampinBuds Studio tour. Did you miss last week’s topic? I talked about Tape Dispensers! Be sure to check it out.
This week let’s talk about something super important…
Week 34: Project Tasks
So, I can’t claim this awesome concept as my own, even though I wish I could! The original idea for this Organization Tip comes from the amazing Stacy Julian when she taught the class 20-in-20 – Brilliant!
As one of our very first projects we created a ‘command station’, of sorts, using Project Tasks. Stacy provided us with a way to organize our projects and make continued progress all year by working in 15 minute chunks with some worksheets she created – I feel super organized already!
Do you recall my dry erase Project List from Week 32? Think of that project as the tippy-top of a pyramid. Right below that are my Project Tasks which I have sorted onto 3 Clip Boards, even though Stacy only worked with one.
- #1 – My 2022/23 Projects that I want to complete by the end of the year.
- #2 – Current projects I want to create, such as layouts and cards for classes & workshops.
- #3 – My ‘on-going’ personal projects such as Baby Books, About Me Albums, etc. that won’t be finished until I actually declare them finished.
Once 2022 is over, I will more than likely just condense into 2 working clip boards. One for the current year of projects and then my on-going project list, but we’ll see. I also thought it could be fun to set the empty clipboard up with tasks I want to get done around the house. You know, things like organize the garage by setting a timer for 15 minutes and going through a box. After all, we’ve been in our house for over 2 years now and we still have a garage full of stuff to go through – OY!
To take this idea one step further I have also set up daily task reminders on my computer to complete several of these tasks a day. By doing this I am feeling more organized than I’ve ever been in my career and I really wished I would’ve done something like this sooner! I’m able to work smarter, not harder and it feels GREAT!
