So I’ve started using this site to keep track of stuff on my to do list. It’s not perfect, and doesn’t work the way I’d like it to (I’d like to be able to make hierarchies of to do lists and have some more flexibility with creating categories) but it’ll do. 1 week ago

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I actually meant by”get organised”recently. It’s a very open and vague goal and needs some defining.
I think what I really would like to achieve is a sense that all the information I need to be able to access is easily discoverable and available to me when I need it to hand.
For instance, most of my docs are available on the cloud. But they are split between Evernote which I used to use religiously for storing documents like receipts, PDFs and web pages, as well as ideas and other notes.
But I also used to use Evernote to author my documents. That doesn’t make sense now with the advent of Google Drive.
So now I have some docs I’ve authored in EN and others I’m now working on in GDrive. I need a plan on to move them and organise them. But I also need a plan on what to keep where and what to move. The same applies to a variety of other platforms and content items I’ve got stored all over the place.
A personal information architecture if you will.
How to achieve that? I suppose in the same way I would handle any other information architecture project. First audit all the information I have and then design a scheme for storing it, organising and grouping it, then sorting it into the system and giving myself understandable, consistent navigation tools to help me find it easily. 2 weeks ago
...for I’ve just read The Solidago Girl’s list of ways (and areas of life) in which to re-invent herself! While just now reading it, I thought to myself, “Self, this could be YOU, and in all different areas of life!” Hence the inspiration and re-energization!
Re: getting organized, I think I’m going to borrow (again!) from TSG’s practical idea to break a goal down into more-accessible goals: Thus…right now, I’m moving from having had a “generic” goal to a more specific goal:
1. Set the m/w timer for 5 minutes and de-clutter the catch-all area on the kitchen counter!
2. Set the m/w timer for 10 minutes and work on soring just ONE box, and not FOUR or FIVE AT ONCE! Divide the piles into the following: “shredder” pile, “file” pile, “think” pile (will now work even harder to make this third category much, much smaller than it’s been in the past).
3. Shred the entire shredder pile at least 1x/week, and sometimes 2-3x/week!
4. COMPLETELY empty out at least ONE box a week for each of the next 5 weeks!
5. REPORT back here on 43T! 3 weeks ago
My current grades:
Language Arts: 98%
Social Studies: 102%
Damnit math got on my nerves. I was trying to get extra credit, so I wouldn’t drop beow 100 this quarter. I was at 112%. Then I took a quiz and somehow got 6 points off… Oh well, still a 101. 4 weeks ago
