Project-managing and working with colleagues waaaasssnn’t exactly easy before the crisis. So I’m imagining that for most of us, things feel much trickier.
I can happily spend hours working alone in a spreadsheet. And I have! But there’s an undeniable satisfaction that comes with being able to work with a bunch of people, to achieve an important outcome for your org and your mission. When that happens, it’s a great feeling.
And when that doesn’t? It’s usually a hiccup somewhere in the coordination.
For a blog that’s about nonprofit productivity, I have a bit of a confession. And if you read my last post, you probably caught it – in the section where I talk about how I manage my work tasks.
Or more specifically, the fact that I don‘t. 😞 I know. Don’t judge me, gang.
It’s not for lack of trying! I’ve stopped and started many a system – spreadsheets, Salesforce, even written planners. Once I reach a point where using the system feels like more work than help, I cut it out of my life.
But now that the demands on my job are increasing, my current “system” of inbox to calendar to memory isn’t cutting it. It’s time for this gal to change her ways.
