If you dislike visual clutter, consider a desk that tucks away so your supplies are out of sight (like this one: http://t.co/M58jFNrgIV).

Very illuminating going over my weekly review checklist and realizing that the parts of the work I dread doing are the things I don’t have systems and structure for… I can see already that this is going to be a big help, and wish I’d gotten started sooner! I’m feeling optimistic, and looking forward to solving the problem(s) and getting my time more focused on the patient work I love to do!Dr. Deborah E., ND
IO has changed my whole perspective on being organized. You guys rock.Amy T., Blueflame Heating & Air Conditioning
The one-on-one attention I got from Elizabeth helped me identify problem areas and prioritize changes to become more streamlined and organized. Replacing old habits with new ones is challenging but extremely rewarding! Thanks again, Elizabeth!Eliott P., Event Services Manager
You definitely demonstrated what you do best – being organized! It was very apparent that you’ve gone through training and certification and truly know your business.Jeanette H., BPW
Elizabeth swiftly and efficiently demonstrated easy methods to organizing my online clutter. My creative and innovative management style no longer clashes with daily details and extensive reporting requirements. What a relief! With a new, common sense system in place, our non-profit initiative become more productive and so have I!Brian Jaeger
I loved your presentation of Email Organizing 101. The presentation was clear and informative, and you offered wonderful tips to make our busy lives easier. I already implemented some of your recommendations, and have no remaining emails at the end of the day in my inbox. Also, you have a great sense of humor, so like everyone else, I truly enjoyed my time there. Time and money well-spent.Jennifer S., Merrill Lynch
I can’t tell you how accomplished I feel today. Even when someone came to me with an “emergency” project, I noted that on my calendar. I know that I can use that information to help people better schedule time with me to get these projects done.Erin George, Real Change News
I am able to accomplish more, in less time. When I work in my home office, I’m not distracted by piles of paper all around me. I am able to proudly show off my work space now! Angela Shen
Elizabeth got right down to the critical changes we needed to make to improve our work flow. And we had fun doing it!Sheree C., Paralegal, Office Max
Innovatively Organized’s Email Mgmt Webinar was great! My inbox is now down to zero for the first time in a long time. I would highly recommend it to any friends or associates!Dan F., Realtor
Share part of your inbox with your assistant so you can efficiently delegate email responses to your assistant.
When someone gives you a business card, make notes on the back to jog your memory later. Notes might include when you met, what you discussed, potential relationship, etc.
Use cloud services as a convenient way to access all your information while you’re on-the-go, through your laptop or your phone.
It’s distracting hearing your phone buzz. Block off time to truly focus; shut the door, silence your phone, close your email.
For large, time-consuming tasks, break them down into smaller sub-tasks and spread them out over the day or week.
Make sure to sync your devices regularly so your information is always accurate and doesn’t contain duplicates.
When downloading an image or file, make sure to save it in a specific folder rather than to your desktop.
For each task on your to-do list, add its estimated completion time. This gives you a realistic view of everything on your plate for the day.
Just because your email comes to your phone, you don’t need to respond immediately. Schedule specific times to check email.
Never plan every minute of your day – add buffer time to your day for the unexpected tasks that pop up.
