Visually Organize Your Office

I visually organize my office and my tasks. Recently, I created this video to give you some tips on how I organize my office visually, and in particular, my social media activities. I hope this helps those of you who struggle with routine.

If you're visual (like me), you might forget to check that box in your app. You will not forget things that are in your face. Let me know if you have a visual method of organizing your office that you'd like to share!

Neat idea with the magnetic chart for fluid, repeating tasks. I could also see this used for teaching with a list of activities, ways of assessing, standards, or other things and use the chart to make sure you hit everything at least once each week.

Yes. Any kinds of routines you can make it visual and move the magnets. Great ideas, Mike. Very true. As long as you know what to track!

I’m not at all visual — which is why it’s even more important for me to have things *in my face.* I try to have a visible list of “Pots on the Fire” so that I don’t get so caught in one project that another little but necessary task is suddenly forgotten. I’m not so great at remembering to maintain a detailed list, but I can at least look up and remember that, oh, I’m in the bike club and we have meetings ;)

This is a great way to approach things – I forget if it is not “in my face” too– totally. I do like that Wunderlist now has a dropdown box on my iphone – that helps but not as much as having this list!
