We Aren’t Broken: How to Get Organized

Even when I try my best, I’ve always had trouble concentrating, keeping organized, and showing up on time. Being a great student or an outstanding employee kind of requires those skills, among others. So, I - and a lot of my techie compatriots - spent years of our lives grinding our teeth and searching for ways around those problems.

We’ve read articles and videos about productivity hacks, to-do lists, apps, reminders, calendars, Pomodoro timers, Kanban boards, and on and on. We compare notes online and at conferences: “What are you using to keep track of your schedule? Oh yeah? What’s the URL?”

I’m older and wiser, and now I know that we are not broken. We just need the right tools. I’m so wise, in fact, that I know the right tool: the Bullet Journal method.

In this session, I’ll tell you a little about what a Bullet Journal is, what problems it can solve, and how to set one up yourself. When you've got the method in motion, you'll have your brain on a page: to-do lists, projects, notes, appointments, priorities, ideas, quotes...everything and anything you want.

Bring along a blank notebook, or to open up a document, to start your own “BuJo” if you like!

Time Management for Neurodiverse Folk

Time management has been a lifelong struggle for me...until now. In this lightning talk, I'll manage my time well to describe the process that works for me. And we'll walk through your own time management process! Downloads included.
