#4 – Get Organized
There are few things more frustrating than spending hours working on a project and then not being able to find it. Maybe you saved it to the desktop or you labeled your important UDS report, “Document1”. This disorganized chaos is unnecessary and preventable.
Organize easy-to-remember folder names and develop (and use consistently) a document naming convention that not only works for you, but will work for the people who follow you when you are recruited away by that six-figure FQHC (Federally-Qualified Health Center) QI job…or, more likely, when you are out for an extended leave after getting hit by lighting.
There are a number of helpful suggestions for developing your own naming convention (here’s a good one) but regardless of the one you choose, use it consistently. Dedicate some time each week to organizing. The time you spend will yield dividends in the coming year.
Stay tuned for #5 – Schedule your year.
