The majority of office positions now rely on computers as a central part of their work day and projects. Even though the majority of work is done digitally, the way that professionals stay organized can still vary dramatically.
Many people still prefer to use paper to stay organized. This includes using notebooks, notepads, wall or desk calendars, and planners to make sure that they know their schedule or are able to keep notes from a meeting. Many people remember things better when they physically write them down, so in that instance, using paper to stay organized can certainly be very effective.
There are many ways to stay organized digitally– smartphones with built in calendars and notepads, tablets like the iPad, online documents like Google Docs and Evernote, and even reminders to tell you when an appointment is coming up. This may work for someone who likes staying digital and doesn’t want to have to keep track of different paper notepads and planners. However, every digital technology occasionally has its hiccups, so there may be problems every once in a while.
Whatever type of organizational method you use– whether it is paper or digital– it is important to go with what works best for you. That is the only way to guarantee success!
