How to Accomplish More Every Day of Your Life — Get Into the ScanCard Habit

The Power of “Consumed” Advertising

All marketers want their customers and clients to remember their brand- especially well into the future. Most advertising dollars go to lining the pockets of newspapers, magazines, television, USPS, internet, etc. We count on the advertising to (hopefully) be noticed and rememberd by the audience so they will eventually buy our product or service.  An alternative, and usually more effective use of advertising dollars, is to develop marketing and advertising programs in which most of the cost of the advertising results in benefit to the customer – it is "consumed"...

Stress can be a Killer!

My doctor friend told me I wasn’t going to die from a heart attack. I was going to die from STRESS. He told me I had too many projects and to-dos and it was a risky place to be. I needed to drop some projects, or get better organized. Typically, we all operate too much from memory – wondering what we should be doing now, next, and what are we forgetting? This is a stressful way to operate. And even worse, we often lose our reminder notes – what was that guy’s email and phone number? What did I promise on that project? How can I reach him? Plus, we...

Most important, some activities may NOT get transferred to a later date, and they are forgotten – they are out of sight, still on your calendar pages of last week! This process of rewritting notes and projects can be time-consuming, to say the least.  Many people depend on their calendar for all their organizational needs, pressing their calendar into service as a...

The hallmark of success and sanity: an effective to-do list system

When you’re in charge, there’s a lot to keep track of. There are people you need to check in with, tasks that need completed by certain deadlines and ideas to be thought of and proposed. The only way to be successful (and stay sane while getting to that point) is to follow an effective to-do list system. It’s easy to let things fall through the cracks when you’re relying on memory or a piece of “To-do List” stationary that, by the end of the day—if you can even find it—is crumpled up with the rest of the papers on your desk. A simple to-do list...
