Planning starts the moment you realize you have a task to finish within a set time frame. From that very moment your own brain starts working on gathering information, evaluating resources and even assessing your agenda. Amazing, right? This is why at any given moment you are aware of "how much work needs to get done." The trick is to work with your own cognitive process rather than doing things redundantly. Writing, recording or typing the most important things that come to mind will help you to execute the project more effectively. This in turn will also enable you to more accurately gauge your timeline.
If you have recently lost a loved one and are responsible for making funeral and burial arrangements, you have quickly realized that you have at lot to do in a short amount of time. Even though you have several tasks that need to get accomplished, you should take some time to collect your thoughts and get organized. Here is some helpful information to help you get organized and get started planning a funeral or memorial service.
Time is the self-proclaiming constant in any project. Resources, schedules, even requirements can change but no one can manipulate time. And, from my own experience I can attest that "rushing against time" never works. Time always wins that race! This is why "planning" is your trump card. Knowing and understanding your plan and everything you have to do at all times will give you the leverage you need to shift gears at any moment. Schedule your various tasks with enough time to comfortably finish each task properly and adequately. Your motto should be to "do it right the first time and forget it."
Another thing you can do is get yourself one of those fantastic diary planners. These business diaries or organizers are exactly that - the key to being well organized. Once again you need to adopt the habit of writing your plans and ideas down as they come to you. Think in writing. When you know the next appointment you will have - write it in. This includes important phone calls, business meetings and family get-togethers. This way you are really utilizing the true benefits to a calendar.
The best way to organize your calendars and planners is in a three-ring binder. You can buy dividers that already have the months of the year printed on them. Just file your monthly calendars in the binder with your planners in between. This is just the start. You can create sections in your binder for whatever you want. For instance, file your children`s school or sports schedules in your organizer. Just punch holes in the pages and file them in the appropriate month. You could also include a list of phone numbers and addresses, or a list of family birthdays and anniversaries.
