GET IT TOGETHER.
- Keep all project materials in one place so you never waste time searching for information.
- Use a separate Three-Ring Binder to contain all of the materials for each of your projects.
- Choose different colored ring binders for each client or project type.
- Label the spine of the ring binder with the project name for quick identification. Keep the binders on your desktop or on a shelf so you can see all of the project names at once.
BREAK IT DOWN.
- Separate project materials into logical parts using Colored Poly Slash Jackets. The translucent material lets you see what's inside.
- Choose a different color for each category. Use the same colors for similar materials in each project binder so finding sections is easy.
- Arrange them in the ring binder in a sequence that follows your workflow for projects.
- Assign project tasks through completion on a list.
- Create deadlines for each task and track them using a "Due Date" column and a "Completed" check box on your project task list.
- Store the task list in the pocket on the inside front panel of the ring binder.
- Stick to your schedule. Enter critical dates on your monthly calendar so you can easily tell if you are on track.
