Five for Friday - June 26th 2015


Hello Friday! And, hello friends! It is time for 5 for Friday!

1. Sticky Note Organizer

I have found a new way to get more organized. I know, I know, I know. Another way.

Let's just agree that I like organising my organisation more than actually being organized.  

I made a pretty little page to get my top six projects displayed easily and scrappily.  


Last week I thought I was pretty proud of myself for finding a way to use the enormous clipboard I found at Officeworks. This will make a perfect board for all my random ideas, thoughts, reminders and notes - I thought. 

Until it became a mess, and I was bogged down in a sticky-note mayhem. 

Now, each morning I pick 6 of my notes and prioritise them on my organiser and it keeps me more focused. I am not ashamed to admit that I quite like the feeling of ripping them off and trashing them when I have completed each task, as well.  


I made a colour and blackline version for you to print out if you would like to try this system as well. I am still using my planner and other tracking systems, but this is a good way to prioritise the nitty gritty.

2. Home Office is Taking Shape.

My wonderful Dad is building me shelves in my new home office and today I finally got to house ALL my sketch books in one place. Eek!



3. Some things are meant to be

I was going through a ton of folders and papers to get my office organized and found all my reports from when I was a prac student. This one gave me a few goosebumps! My internship supervisor (in 2000) noted that one of my main strengths was preparing tacking resources and that she thought they were of a commercial quality! I can't remember reading that at the time, but it is fun to look back at and realise that perhaps my journey to where I am now was on the cards all along. I can say, that preparing resources in the year 2000 was very different to now. I vividly remember driving a half hour to use the only colour photocopier in my town.


4. Inspiration

I love reading motivational quotes. I am always trying to find the most perfect one that succinctly explains how I feel about the world. Although I have not found that one quite yet, I love finding ones that challenge me to think wider and encourage me to be a better person. Here is one I found this week that I thought was great!
