Tina Turbin Speaks Out – How to Get Organized

Let’s pick up where I left off about my schedule and how I get so much done. To be organized is a good thing and to have a schedule of some sort is always helpful. Sometimes SO MUCH is happening and I have so many deadlines that I think I am going around in little circles. Piles of papers, files, the computers and computer screens. I research and write about companies regarding kids and their health, gluten-free and family issues as this all also aligns with my personal goals to help improve the quality of life and health of others. I write for other publications and sites and it can get a bit overwhelming to keep up with all that is required and to also keep on top of the Danny the Dragon series, tours and my humanitarian interests. This is my what I do: keep a large calendar and I mean LARGE. Write out the appts. and deadlines. Or if you are an aspiring author, set goals. I have found that e-mails are the black hole. I use discipline and do not allow myself to get into them unless I have done what is really important. I also do not at all bother with answering all my e mails as I only reply to those that are important. Some can wait until the week-end or even the next month if you are truly too busy. I do not use my phone or computer for my MAIN calendar. It just does not work for me. To have one BIG calendar up for me to see at all times keeps me focused and organized. Good help is another factor as we all know.
