Inbox cleanup 101

LEARN | TWELVE, SEPTEMBER 2019 

When it comes to decluttering your work life, I always like to start with my email inbox. There is nothing more overwhelming than a cluttered inbox where the important is mixed in with all of those junk emails you never read. 


Lets face it, half of what comes into your inbox you probably delete without even opening! OR you leave it in there for fear of deleting something important and actually end up missing the true important stuff.

I like to keep an inbox of a rotating 5. Thats right FIVE emails! Here are my tips and tricks on how to clean up that inbox, make sure nothing gets lost, and relieve that inbox stress immediately.

In Search of More Time

LEARN | TWELVE, JULY 2019 

Time. It can be your best friend or it can be your worst enemy, it’s all a matter of how you look at it.I’ve often found myself struggling to find the time to get things, both professional and personal, done. At some point or another, we’ve all said to ourselves “if only there was more time in a day.” Well, I have some good news for you, sadly it’s not that I’ve found a way to magically add more hours to our days, but I have implemented the idea of time blocking into my personal and professional life and guess what?! IT REALLY WORKS!!

Finding the Still Water

LEARN | TWELVE, JUNE 2019 

 

I recently listened to a lecture about turmoil in life. We all have it. We all hate it.

The person giving the lecture walked into the room with a glass of water. He proceeded to shake the water in a circular motion within the glass explaining that this is how most of us feel - how most of our brains are functioning right now. Constantly thinking…constantly juggling a million priorities…. constantly adding to our lengthy list of what’s next and all of the things we have to do to get there.

This constant stress can be felt both personally and professionally. “I’m one big sale from stability in my life” OR “I just need help in these areas to achieve my goals” OR “If my children would only listen to THIS, things would be so much easier!”.

Time Blocking Strategy

LEARN | TWELVE, APRIL 2019 

You know the what and the how, but do you know the when?

Like most professionals, you’re probably a planner.  You have your “to do” lists and your carefully laid out directions on what to do and how to do it.  But do you plan when to do those things?  If not, you may often find yourself jumping from task to task, maybe feeling a little overwhelmed by your “to do” lists and not getting as much accomplished in a day as you’d originally intended.  Have no fear, time blocking is here to help! Elon Musk does it, so does Bill Gates, you’ll be in good company!

Images of Grandeur

LEARN | TWELVE, MARCH 2019 

If you look up the definition of white-glove it means to be marked by special care or attention. When entrepreneurs and business owners speak of white-glove service, the phrase sparks images of grandeur and distinguished attention to detail. Many entrepreneurs are striving to create a unique white-glove experience for their clients that elevate their service offerings and show the world what makes them great.

One of the best ways to show the world the ‘you that makes you you’ is to get clear on the front-stage versus back-stage processes that make up your business model. You can gain immense clarity about your business by altering your perspective and looking at things through the filters of front-stage and back-stage.

Project Management Innovation - Instagantt

LEARN | TWELVE, DECEMBER 2018 

At Delegate Solutions we work with entrepreneurs from a wide variety of backgrounds and pride ourselves on being thoughtful and innovative problem solvers that can find a solution to most obstacles and can customize our strategy to suit our clients.

I was recently working with a client that has used Asana for many years but abandons the project management tool at times of high stress. As we worked to identify what obstacles kept him from implementing projects in Asana to completion, we identified that he is a visual learner and needed a tool that would provide a visual map of the workflow. I looked for a free online project management tool that could incorporate a Gantt chart view and ultimately decided to use Instagantt. Instagantt is a tool that syncs with Asana (or as a standalone) to provide a Gantt chart view for project and workload management. There are numerous benefits and it requires little effort to set up projects.

Utilize Asana and the Bottleneck Diagnostic to Increase Productivity

LOVE | TWELVE, AUGUST 2018

 

Asana Timeline Dependencies:Asana has added a helpful new feature – timeline dependencies. When you’re planning a new marketing campaign, product launch, or other cross-functional project, the sequence of work is just as important as the work itself.

With Timeline in Asana, you can map out your project plan to see how all the work fits together. And with recent improvements to Timeline, you can now draw dependencies between tasks. As you spot timing conflicts, you can adjust dates right on Timeline so you feel confident in your project schedule. Then as work gets underway, teammates will know when dependent work is completed so they can start their tasks.
