Don't Get Scared, Get Organized

I have a big deadline approaching. A really big deadline.

And all of the tasks in front of me that I have to accomplish to meet that deadline seem overwhelming at times.

A colleague offered this advice to me this morning as I notified her of my time crunch:

It may sound silly but the best business advice I ever received was from McGruff the was:

"Don't get scared...get organized."

As this woman is an event organizer for some of the biggest West Coast retail trade shows and previously started and ran her own retail store, well, I’m inclined to consider her a credible source.

So it’s back to my to-do list. Back to filing and sorting. Back to the tasks at hand.

Thanks, McGruff.
