Talk of Alabama

This month, we are looking at systems of note taking. Today, however, we are taking a break from that theme to follow-up on today’s “Talk of Alabama” on ABC 33/40.

Update: The segment is no longer available on the ABC 33/40 website. I am leaving the post in place so you can download the labels and enjoy the other information in the post.

If you liked the idea of the tickler file and want to implement it, I have a couple of bonuses for you. First, instead of creating labels for the tickler file, you are going to be able to download a set.

Remember, I like to use hanging files. What you will get on this download is one sheet containing all of the labels. Just put a blank piece of paper in the printer. Cut the labels apart with scissors and slip them into the tabs. Here is an example using the set you are able to download:

Tickler File

You learned that Chapter 1 of my book Get Organized! talks about the tickler file. The second gift for you is a “sneak peek” at the book, and that preview includes the majority of that chapter. When you sign up for my mailing list, you will receive a link in the first newsletter to download it for free.

Joining the list is free. In addition to the “sneak peek” into the book, you will receive free content one a week for 5 weeks and once a month from there after. If at any time you decide you want to unsubscribe, every newsletter includes a link that lets you do that.

Get Organized! in 2016

If your New Years resolution was to “Get Organized!”, the promise you made to yourself on New Year’s Day doesn’t have to be ancient history by Ground Hog Day.

  1. Set up your tickler file.
  2. Subscribe to the mailing list
  3. Order the book.
  4. While you’re waiting for it to arrive, peruse the blog posts. Use the search box to find a topic of interest. The chances are if it relates to organization and time management, I have written about it.
  5. Talk to the decision makers where you work. If I haven’t been to your organization, it’s because nobody has asked me.
