Professional Organizing Tips and Resources.
From my 20 Step Office Organizing Checklist, the task for this week is:
Many times in the past when taking on a new position in a new company, I had to learn procedures fast. We'll if you’re like me, I could not remember how to perform these new complex tasks by just being shown one or twice over the course of several weeks. So what I did was, when ever I was being trained on a new system I would open a word document and save it as a "How To..." file.
As I was being shown what to do I would take a screen shot of my desktop and paste in each new screen as it came up through the process. I would make brief notes as to what to information to enter, what buttons to hit and what file location I may need to refer to, etc.
I would make some time to edit it later to make it more clean looking and print and put in a binder at my desk. So the next time, a week or more later when I was asked to perform he same tasks, I would just pull it out, find the page and start doing the work. When I was in a position where I had a supervisor watching over me, they loved it!
Like the idea, want a 'How To' binder of your own, yet don’t know where to start?
