Get Organized - January's free download - Photo Studio Worksheets

I've been playing around with the idea of creating something like this for a while now. This bundle of worksheets was born from my own need for tools that would help me get more organized and help me get more out of my work time.

I don't know about you, but I stray off tasks easily, when I don't have some sort of written plan in place. Not because I get lazy, but rather because I always seem to find some other things that need my 'immediate attention' :)

My husband made for me a large black board at the end of last year (a mirror from Ikea + a few coats of chalckboard paint). That and the 'idea notebooks' that I keep handy, close by, have been really helping me to keep my mind clear and be in the moment. Not once I got up after going to bed, to put on paper the ideas swimming in my head. Anything to make room for an enjoyable half an hour of reading and sweet slumber.

The mere thought that my thoughts are on paper or on the chalkboard, and there is no way I will forget them, helps me relax. I am getting better about playing doll house with my daughter without running in the back of my head all the things that I need to tackle the next day.

Now, I just need to stick to the plans that I make, and all is well! ;)

Allowing for larger margins with all projects is something I still need to work on. Designing the last marketing bundle took twice the time I planned for. Things always take longer than you expect. ...Factor in a sick child that can not go to school or child care, and culling and editing the images from that last photo session you were planning to work on, just got pushed back another day or two.

If rules are made to be broken, then plans are made to be changed sometimes. Life happens. ...I am sure planning though, to be more prepared for life's happenings in 2013. :) And allow plenty of margins for changes.

I thought this download might turn out to be very valuable for others who will find the post later, down the road this year, so there is no expiration and time limit on it for now.

If you have a friend, or know someone who you believe could benefit from this please share it. You are not obligated by any means to do so, but I will be forever grateful to you (and your friend/s might be too :) To download the files, simply click the preview image below.
