Time Management

 “The things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least.” Goethe

Many people have their desks covered with papers, e-mail boxes full to overflowing, computers where documents can’t be accessed due to poor naming conventions and lack of a solid “finding” system.  They think they have these problems because they don’t know how to organize.  Denise believes those are just the physical evidence of an inability to manage one’s time.  While there is no such thing as “Time Management”, there is a VERY REAL THING called “Action Management”.  By precisely managing our actions, we can actually “find” that lost time and arrive at goal completion.

  • Task chunking similar actions to maximize efficiency.
  • Time blocking.
  • Finding the right time management and task list tools for each person’s unique style.
  • Backward scheduling technique to meet and exceed deadlines
  • Helping people understand one of the most effective time management tools is a two-letter word “NO”!

Productivity Maximization

“People think focus means saying yes to the thing you’ve got to focus on. But that’s not what it means at all. It means saying no to the hundred other good ideas that there are. You have to pick carefully.” -Steve Jobs

  • Objectives achieved as a result of priority clarification.
  • Two-minute rule.
  • Computer settings customized so there are no pop-ups or notifications.
  • Using e-mail templates.
  • Task Chunking.
  • Categorization of Urgent vs. Important.

Paper Management

  • They say we will soon live in a world free of paper. Denise doesn’t believe that!  While we may have less paper we need to keep, we will still have a need for printed documents.  She can easily help you manage those items you need to have at your fingertips.
  • Scanning.

Filing Cabinets Converted to FINDING Systems

Many filing cabinets are so full of papers, the drawers won’t shut.  We all need to save papers and file items, but if your systems isn’t set up to re-find that document again, your file cabinet becomes a big black hole.  Document retrieval is quick and easy if you have a proper FINDING system!
