Anita M Brown
24:56
it's ok
Sandra Love-Corum
25:07

This is so cool! Oh but it doesn't help me at all.
Jessie Jones

:)
Lauren Corbett

You can tag emails without skipping the inbox with gmail and then do a mass archive on selections later
Lauren Corbett
39:11
did that make sense?
arholloman4490
39:11
Hi
Velappan Velappan(North Carolina)
39:33
I agree with you Amy...so many unread email...
Lauren Corbett
39:58
I resemble that!
Anita M Brown
41:23
so thankful for wonderful learning ops; thank God for them and the privilege.
Melissa Kammerer
41:37
Guilty! I sign up for so many recordings that I never have time to watch.
Kayla_Shivers
42:07
Not getting the recording (gasps)...my guilty pleasure
Claudia
44:13
thanks for your honesty!
Melissa Kammerer
44:55
Too many listservs and email lists for sure!
Melissa Kammerer
45:03
I want to know it all!
Melissa Kammerer
45:04
lol
Lauren Corbett
45:10
I'm interested in everything and so have a hard time deciding what to eliminate
Anita M Brown
45:11
can't see the tree for forest
Kayla_Shivers
45:16
flagging everything
Velappan Velappan(North Carolina)
45:26
always want to learn more from listserv and professional development webinars
Julia
45:45
emails- and interested in everything
scorum
45:50
Yes! always want to know and learn more.
Julia
46:02
balance! yes!
Lauren Corbett
46:03
And the broader your role (liaison + manager + …) adds to that
Ashlin
46:03
Emails for sure - thanks for your tip, I will use filters to help with this
Anita M Brown
46:25
covid took more time than est, but allowed us learning ops to stay current
Amelia Midgett-Nicholson
46:33
Boomerang is a helpful tool for email
Beth Thompson
46:35
The squirrel moment where something shiny takes my attention away from what I am supposed to be doing.
Bebe J
46:53
Yes! Oooo, shiny!
Bebe J
47:08
Yes! Amy!
Bebe J
47:28
I am guilty of continuing to read after that customer is long gone!
Jessie Jones
48:13
I call it my ADD tendencies. it happens a lot when I clean. I'm cleaning the kitchen and all of the sudden there's something that belongs in the bedroom, so I go to the bedroom and get distracted by stuff in there.
Bebe J
48:19
Such a great analogy!
Lauren Corbett
48:28
me too Jessie!
Melissa Kammerer
48:59
Yep! An hour later the hall closet is impeccably organized and the kitchen hasn't been touched. Lol
Lauren Corbett
49:23
Many kindred spirits in this session!
Abby Moore
50:15
Me too
Melissa Kammerer
54:44
I love the idea of using it for mail!
Melissa Kammerer
54:55
I'm so bad at mail though!
Kayla_Shivers
55:07
Plan programs during the "off" season
Joy Garretson
55:07
When I subscribe to a new service, I put a payment reminder on the calendar a year from the start date. That saves me often!
Beth Thompson
55:17
schedule on my calendar tasks I have to do.
Kenny Arnold
55:26
To beat my procrastination, I ask myself to work on something for at least 5 minutes, and I usually end up working on it more because I got past the hurdle
Melissa Kammerer
55:34
I also think it would be good for reading email and adding action items to my to do list instead of just pinning them to re-read
Carla Hollar
55:40
Do it while you have it in your hand. Piles get away from you. I've also started using Google calendar for planning programs, webinars and meetings in ways I NEVER did before.
Anita M Brown
55:42
I use a wipe board at my home desk
Velappan Velappan(North Carolina)
55:45
Plan for the next day by looking at the meeting schedule by looking the previous night.
Mary McDonald
56:11
Take half a day to do one thing and catch up. Does wonders.
Jeanne Hoover
56:15
@Kenny, same here. I use the Pomodoro technique for something that is hard to focus on
Melissa Kammerer
56:21
Ooh, Kenny I love that idea! Makes it seem less overwhelming. "It's just 5 minutes."
Velappan Velappan(North Carolina)
56:24
Pin my emails to response next day
Lauren Corbett
56:29
Make a SMART goal to have specific work-related learning interests (maybe per month or quarter so I don't feel deprived). That would make it easier to eliminate the irrelevant emails, webinars.
Joy Garretson
56:32
Scheduling time for organization (file cleanup, desk cleanup, etc.)
Mary McDonald
56:50
Empower the DELETE key
Jessie Jones
57:33
time block has been helpful for me... when I actually do it haha
Jessie Jones
57:38
*blocking
Lauren Corbett
58:01
I got it from this -- so thanks!
Amelia Midgett-Nicholson
58:05
Communicate your priorities/tasks with your team
Melissa Kammerer
58:05
Oooh, that is a great idea!
Velappan Velappan(North Carolina)
58:13
write the meeting schedule on my monthly white board calendar
Abby Moore
59:07
WFH has been detrimental to my productivity so I might volunteer to be in office 3 days a week next semester…
Abby Moore
59:42
It’s so hard for me.
Lauren Corbett
01:00:31
so it is a trade-off really!
Jessie Jones
01:02:13
omg, yes. when I get energized I plan ALL THE THINGS and then they never actually happen

love it
Velappan Velappan(North Carolina)
01:04:31
Is it free Amy?
Melissa Kammerer
01:04:49
I used that in another industry. It was great for getting a realistic idea of how much time certain projects take. Which means you can more easily say "Yes, I have time to do this." Or "not, that's an x hour project I'll need a bit longer."
Anna
01:06:46
I'm going to reorganize/ declutter my email
Anita M Brown
01:06:48

Velappan Velappan(North Carolina)

Cleanup my emails. That's great to know that about TOGGL. I just created an account.
Jeanne Hoover
01:07:42
