I was following links from one place to another (otherwise known as surfing - for some reason I don't like writing that I was surfing the 'Net; I'd just rather write it in a more convoluted way), and I found Behance. Behance is all about consulting and developing products for creatives. While the entire site seems to be helpful, there were a few things that were just outstanding.
"Advertise Action to Yourself" - the short article gave some great tips, one of which I just started using in my new time management calendar system, color coded post-it notes. (I came up with that BEFORE I read the article. Just in case anyone's keeping score.)
"Creating Action Areas" - While I think this is a great idea, I think it might work better in a workplace or a commune where many people take care of the various tasks. When you're the only one doing stuff, it doesn't seem to make sense to create an action area. I will admit that my kitchen counter does accumulate mail that needs to be put in the mailbox, boxes to be shipped, notes to call people, and more. On second thought, I guess I already have an action area. (Once again, did it before I read the article. Points = two.)
"Laying Your Energy Line" - This tip was by far my favorite. I just loved the visual. I'm not sure that I can use it exactly the way Behance shows, but I love the idea behind it and even just the words, "laying your energy line." This is definitely an idea I want to explore. (I did NOT do this or anything like it before I read the article, so point total is still at two.)
