Out With the Old . . .

Will you be working next week? Many small business owners take very little time off over the holidays.  If you are one of the few who managed to carve out precious family time, I applaud you and wish you a very Merry Christmas.  Please check back in with "The Organized Entrepreneur" in January to start the New Year off with some great ideas to help you stay organized and on track for 2008. 
If, like many others, you cannot pry yourself away from the office next week, this relatively quiet time provides an excellent opportunity to clear out last year's clutter and start the year off organized and refreshed. 
Take an afternoon to clear out your unnecessary electronic files and make sure that your computer filing system mimics your paper filing system to streamline the process of retrieving documents and data.  Storing unnecessary files on your computer can use up memory space that is needed for other items and make it more difficult to find what you need. 
You may need to set aside an entire day to clear excess paper out of your files and straighten your desk.  Make sure you are starting off the New Year with a clean desk, frequently used supplies right at your fingertips and, most importantly, the space to think and breathe while you work. 
Here's to a Merry Christmas and an Organized New Year!
Don't forget that January is National Get Organized Month.  You can check with www.napo.net to look for local GO Month events.

What I'm Reading . . .

  • "Raising Financially Fit Kids", Joline Godfrey
    Common sense ideas and insight into raising kids who are wll-prepared to manage their own finances as young adults.
  • "The Success Principles: How To Get From Where You Are to Where You Want To Be" by Jack Canfield
    This book really got me excited about pursuing my goals and growing my business. There is a heavier emphasis on materialism than what I am comfortable with, but overall this is an inspiring book.
  • "The Organized Executive", by Stephanie Winston
  • "No B.S. Time Management for Enterpreneurs" by Dan Kennedy
