Organizing yourself to organize others

Last few days I have spent seriously looking on how to better organize myself.   I’m looking ahead and can see a LOT of things moving forward – and in order to move forward FAST – I need strong organization.

I have looked at systems to manage my tasks, revamped the way outlook is used for my own tasks (aligning them with the growth goals) – and updating SharePoint for departmental work tasks.

Having said this, it was an interesting day, I drifted in from high level of corporation to low level. 

High level means I was looking at the international corporate structure – looking at various corporate entities and how to re-structure worldwide operations.   Since there is no expertise in-house, am talking to 5 different firms about providing expertise.   One call today with Hong Kong was promising –  finding the resources that I need for high level optimization is imperative to enable further growth.

On the low level stuff – I finalized the marketing message for Silver Devotion and handed it over to the developer to skin the site, and further refined the RedStores.com sites.

My self organization has paid off too – my inbox has 5 messages (down from 500) – and my tasks are laid out for tomorrow and the rest of the week.

Now that I’m able to ‘drive’ myself – I will be able to help the rest of the company drive itself that much faster.
