A couple of weeks ago I had a very frustrating evening. I usually count myself as a fairly organised person, as a busy working mum it comes with the territory. That is to say however I am not immune to occasionally forgetting birthdays, realising I have nothing in the fridge or leaving an essential task to the very last minute.
The essential task in question was a hen weekend plan complete with images of the hen and full itinerary and directions. Sitting down at 8pm on the Wednesday before (following a dozen Facebook reminders!), it took me over an hour to collate all this information, as you can imagine by 9.30pm all I wanted was to hit send and pour myself a glass of wine at a job well done. Instead I hit send and my in box filled with a dozen bounce backs - oh joy!
I am sure I am not the only one who often finds sending attachments via email a hugely frustrating process. Almost always the document is too large to email. Often your own inbox, or that of the recipients, is too full.
If only ePrint’s recently launched Mydocs was already available, if so I would certainly have made use of it. Since it has launched I have found it valuable – especially as I often work from home and need colleagues to approve or contribute to large file documents. I now feel I can reclaim my crown as the most organised person in my house.
By the way the actual definition of organised is being able to find anything within a minute or two. This includes items in your home to an email, document or photo on your computer.
Here some tips I have recently read about how to become a ‘Super Organised’ person:
1. Plan your life. Set aside time to plan your activities for the week ahead. Before you finish your work each day, take 5 minutes to quickly plan your main priority tasks for the next day.
2. Have a place for everything and everything in its place. Everything in your house/office should have a specific home so that you can locate items immediately.
3. Have systems and keep to them. For instance, as you run low or finish foods, immediately add them to your shopping list.
4. Write things down. When you write things down, it clears your mind so you can focus on more productive and creative thoughts.
5. Declutter regularly – this includes your documents and emails.
6. Put things away - It takes a moment to put things back where they belong or to file or delete an email immediately.
Now where did I put my pen, I know I had it a minute ago……..

Perhaps you want to combine a few documents together to make up a report before sending it to a colleague. Alternatively you may just want the convenience of a free on-line PDF conversion service to ensure that it is formatted correctly for printing
