How To Get Crazy Organised with Trello

Being organised isn’t something you are automatically born with.  Sure, some people seem to have a propensity for it but mostly, it’s a learned skill.

That means you can get better at being organised.  It involves putting systems in place and the discipline to actually USE them.  That second part is where a lot of people fall down.

Organisation also takes practice and patience.  You may find you need to change and tweak systems if they don’t work for you.

Over the years I’ve tried MANY organisational techniques, some of these work wonders for years, but as my situations changed so did the systems I had to run them.

So today I want to talk about a new system I use.  It has helped to reduce my obsessive amount of paper (well, some of it… we’ll talk about Tackling the Paper Mountain next week!)

I needed a system I could put (almost) EVERYTHING into.  Say Hello to Trello.

February Goals 2020 | Monthly Goals

Okay, so old habits die hard… REALLY hard and I’ve gone back to more than 5 goals.  You heard me, I have crowbarred in a few more goals.  Though in my defence, my goals haven’t hit double figures.

I know, I know… you are all probably giving me the stink eye.  To be fair, they aren’t CRAZY goals and I have got them all planned out throughout the month rather than doing nothing for the first two weeks then panicking as I try and cram them all in.

In fact, I’m feeling pretty damn good about these goals.

5 of My Most Popular Blog Posts in 2019

Since we are still in January, I thought I’d take this opportunity to look back over my blog and see which posts people seemed most interest in visiting.

I am always working on this blog, planning content, updating old posts, adding to my ever-growing list of topics, listening to my readers requests…so I wanted to see how last year turned out.

It was my best year ever for visitors and comments and I’m so thrilled about that.  So I decided to have a look at which blog posts people really loved.

How to Create Super Awesome Graphics with Canva

Want to make awesome visuals for your blog or boost your marketing with eye-catching graphics?  Want to make your social media images pop? 

Then, if you aren’t already, you need to be using Canva.

Since I’ve had a lot of questions on how I make my graphics and book aesthetics, I thought I’d do a tutorial/product review of the program Canva.

What My Top 5 Focus Tasks Are

Last year, I wrote a post that discussed the merits of picking your Top 5 Tasks/Projects to focus on.

We are easily distracted by Shiny Object Syndrome that has us flitting from one thing to another and actually gaining enough focus to truly commit to a project or task can be hard.

The premise of the 5 Focus Tasks is that these are the ones you truly commit to and you DO NOT take on any other tasks until these are completed.
