Hi everyone, so in this video, I am going to share with you guys one tip for getting things done. And that tip is to have a project planning board in your home or in your office. So I’m in my office. I’m in front of my project planning board. And this is by far not my to-do list, my to-do list is separate from this board. This is instead a place where I track and I manage all the projects that are going on inside of my business. So let me grab the camera and show you guys what this looks like and show you guys how you can do the same thing inside of your home or your office. These are my project boards in my home office. I am going to quickly go up and down and share with you guys what they look like then I’ll explain to you guys how I use them. So aren’t they so pretty? I feel like they are so pretty probably just because all the Post-it notes are in a color-coded order, and they just look so neat and organized. Let me first quickly tell you what these boards are. So these are, they’re white boards. They don’t look like boards because they are very thin, but they are white boards that are laminated and you can write on them with a dry erase marker and they erase perfectly fine. I am not really a dry erase person because I am left handed and so the ink will just smear on my hand. So that’s why I like Post-it notes. A company called Planet Safe Planners makes these boards and they are 100% biodegradable and they make all kinds of white boards. They make calendars, they make spiral bound charts like this. I forget what this is called. This a is 36 by 24 five column tracker. They are double sided so on the back is something different. They have different sizes, different calendars for different uses. They sell Post-it notes. So they’re actually made to put Post-it notes like this. They have tons of different colors, tons of different size Post-it notes. So they are just very cool. Let me tell you what I use this for. So every different thing I do at work, I track. Every different project that we are working on gets written down just so I know whats going on, Ed knows what’s going on and everybody that is working on something has a clue of what’s going on. Basically what I do is every time a new project comes up or we think of a new project that we want to work on. We’ll just take a sticky note, we’ll write down the project and then we’ll put it under the master project category. So for example, design, Matt is our graphic designer, so these three projects are three projects that Matt’s working on. So if I want to know, or Ed wants to know, what Matt’s working on he can just come here and look at the design column and see ok Matt’s got 3 things going on. Or what are we doing with the website? Pete’s got six things going on, he’s working on these six projects. So we can just kind of know what’s going on. We all kind of understand where we are with things. Once something gets accomplished it gets moved down to the accomplished section. I just made up this category and used my label maker and labelled this. You can label it whatever you want, obviously label your catagories whatever you want. But once something gets accomplished, like, for instance, this – if you haven’t noticed we have a new YouTube background – thanks to Matt our awesome graphic designer, he did an amazing job. So once this is done, then it comes down here and it goes into the accomplished section. You’re probably wondering, well, why do we have an accomplished section? Why don’t we just throw away these sticky notes like a normal person would? Well when I look at this board. Well, I come up here and I look at all these sticky notes, I don’t know about you, but I am like ‘Oh my gosh, we have so much to do, we so many projects going on, how will we ever get these things done?’ When that happens, when I have those thoughts, I just look down here and I look at everything we’ve accomplished and I’m like ‘okay, I know everything is going to get done, look how far we’ve come. Look at all the things I’ve gotten done in the past few months.’ I have no doubt in my mind that all these things will get accomplished in time. I do that by just looking at everything that we’ve accomplished and then I am reminded that, okay, in a few months all these things will be moved down into the accomplished section. That’s why I have an accomplished category at the bottom. What else was I going to say here? Oh yes, this – we kind of call this our Tetris board. If you stand back it kind of looks like a Tetris board, like all these things are blocks and down there is the blocks where they fall into. I don’t know if that makes sense, but that’s what Ed and I always think this board looks like. I love these project boards! It’s just a place to write everything down – write down all the projects we have going on or that what we want to tackle in the future. Like, maybe I’m not going to tackle this project next week, maybe I will be ready to tackle it in 3 months down the road. But now that I know it’s in a safe place where it’s not going to get lost and the idea won’t get forgotten about, I know it will get done when the time is right. This by far is not my to-do list. My to-do list is separate from this. I have a different process that I use. This is just what I use to manage all the projects we have going on in the business. One thing I do here is I color code all the master project categories. So for example, the YouTube category – these are all YouTube projects or YouTube videos that I will get done. These are all ideas that you guys have given me or ideas that I came up with of videos that I’m going to do. So anyway, I use orange for YouTube, so when I come to the project planner, I know I am responsible for all the orange Post-it notes. While Ed’s our tech support guy, he’s responsible for all the blue post it notes and so forth. We color code so it’s easy to distinguish who is responsible for what. So now that you guys have seen my project planning board, now you guys know what I do with all the Post-it notes if you guys watched my Post-it note video that I did a few weeks ago. A lot of people were like, ‘why do you have so many post it notes? No one in the world needs that many post it notes!’ But yeah, this just one area where I use Post-it notes. I use Post-it notes everywhere in the house. This is just one big area where I use them all the time. So if you wanted to do the same thing inside of your house or your office, but you don’t have the wall space to do it, you can totally do the same thing and do a digital version in Excel or whatever spreadsheet software that you use. I am such a creative, visual person, so I like to have something physical to be able to touch and see and always have it in front of me. Because I am out of sight, out mind, once it’s gone, once the file is closed, then I tend to forget about. So having something that I can see every single day and peel off when things are done or put it up is very helpful for my organizing personality. Okay, so that’s our project planning board in the Alejandra.tv office, I hope this video was helpful, if you want more information on where to get these cool whiteboards, that I showed you guys with the Post-it notes, I will put a link to the website and the bottom of this video in the description. I’m sorry – the last video I did, I don’t think the link showed up. So I will make sure that the link works this time. If you do something similar in your home or your office, related to managing projects, then leave a comment below or create a video response and let me see exactly what you do. And that’s everything that I have for you guys. I will see you soon! Bye!
