Ring Ring - bell for the first day at College is ringing!
Welcome to the first week of Filofax College.
I am going to be working thought the lessons using some help from some organisational books I have found, things I have found on the net, and also maybe some blog lessons on the way, not that I am amazing at blogging but I thought it could just keep it a bit exciting.
I would like to welcome all new members and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for joining me. As from now on every Monday will be Filofax College, I will try not to have any breaks. If anyone would like to be a guest poster please let me know, email me and I will let you teach a lesson!
We may even have some Skype discussions with Filofax College, I will make vidoes for you to follow and learn from! I am very excited about this year of Filofax College!
I am going to do a few different posts on To-Do lists, I know you are all thinking, how can you make more than one post on to do lists, well I can as I have a few ideas you can use, just depends which you prefer.
I have a few ways I organise To do lists and if I chuck it all at you at once, you may be a bit like.....WHATTTT HELP IM SCARED WHAT DO I DO, YOU SAID DO THIS BUT NOW YOUR DOING SOMETHING ELSE... they were some examples.
Today will be Colour coding To-Do List.
What you will need for this is, A pen & coloured paper (& a Filofax if you own one)
There are two options of how to start this, you can either make one huge list of everything on a separate sheet of paper first then gradually distribute them over the colour coded pages or you can write it as you think about it.
I always make one big list with everything on it.
Here is my example:
Then once I have done that I choose some set categories and transfer them on to coloured paper.
I first of all get a pile of different colours and think which category goes best with which colour...
Here are my titles, I did also have Miscellaneous but I tore that list up!
I then wrote out items from my main list on to each catagory
This is one way I organise my to-do lists in a few weeks time I will show you another way.
Today's homework is quite simple introduce yourself below in the comments i.e.
Hello I am Imogen, and I use a Filofax, I am 22 years old and live in the United Kingdom.
Then join the Filofax College Flickr Page and share a picture of your attempt at colour coding to-do lists, I would love to see how you get on!
Next week is a special guest lesson, look out for it next Monday!!!
Sorry today's lesson was so short, but I didn't want to overload you with information, the next to-do list lesson will be more in depth and helpful!
WELCOME TO FILOFAX COLLEGE!
