TRIPLE III TIME: A “Mini-Resource Library”
OK… please know that I have never been one to pledge one or more New Year Resolutions. As all of us have realized over our years, making meaningful promises to eat better, get more exercise, lessen our cell phone/computer times and/or stay in better contact with friends and family are all quality intentions… but are difficult to stay entrusted to. However just to try and set a new example and maybe help me improve on all life-fronts… I am pledging to create A “Mini-Resource Library” this year!
What do I mean by A “Mini-Resource Library”?
Let me explain. During my career years I have been fortunate to have many good friends and colleagues that have collected and stored a ton of resource materials that I have created or utilized multiple times. And without their strong support, I would have been so less effective in my leadership and consultant responsibilities.
Whether in a paper document format or online, I have been very poor in making sure I retained quality information that in many ways could have helped more people and groups in many, many ways. Hence, the need for A “Mini-Resource Library”!
Realistically, I picture my Mini-Resource Library for 2020 as a small “legal-looking” box. In it I would have 12 individual files that would contain documents, notes or computer-based references to projects that I have worked on during a specific month. I don’t plan on having files with a group of lengthy documents in them… rather just single pages of reference notes that would help me find it on my “not always friendly” computer. The goal would be to create a condensed “Mini-Resource Library” that would efficiently manage ideas and concepts, reduce the lose of valuable innovation shared, and MAKE ME MORE PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE for all of it!
Skip the New Year Resolution tradition label… and think about creating A “Mini-Resource Library” for yourself. You may be surprised and pleased with the special record you preserve.
