Creativity seems like fun while managing creativity feels a whole lot like work. Actually both take work, but managing the work is not nearly as exciting. This year we found a tool that is really helping us track and prioritize our work without making us become technical administrators at the same time. It is called Liquid Planner. Currently 59 projects are on our list of To Do's and without this tool it would be overwhelming to manage all the details associated with these jobs. We are enjoying a benefit from having one central place in which to record all the details and keep track of dates at the same time. Our mission is all about people reaching people, and often we use resources that enhance those connections. Those resources need to be in place when the people are present, and so we have to make our deadlines and ensure the tools are ready for those connections whether they be on campus, at a retreat or a conference or anytime, and on any day on the web.
We are joyfully busy and organized!
