A little over a year ago, I was introduced to my new best friend in business...Asana...and now I'd like to introduce you so you can be friends too!
Asana is a fabulous project-management tool that streamlines everything for a project of any kind. You create tasks, assign due dates and who is to handle each task, add notes, and upload files. I love the fact that it helps create sequence in a multi-step project with a lot of moving parts. Asana has hugely helped organize a couple of teams I'm on and I'm singing its praises in every business setting!
Let's say you are writing a book. You set goal due dates for each chapter, outline the assistance you'll want (tasks for an editor, publisher, marketing firm), store all the details like working title and subtitle, perhaps a character "tree." You're reminded through email when a task is due so you never lost sight of the goal!
Or perhaps you are excited to host an event. Create sections within the project for each aspect (registration, presenters, marketing, venue, etc.), assign tasks within those sections along with due dates, keep track of emails and communications with those involved.
Another example: you're planning a huge holiday dinner party. Get organized by planning with Asana! Get reminders when shopping is due, or a particular dish must be started, or who's bringing the green bean casserole.
I recommend checking out the possibilities with this fabulous organizational tool!
