Dive in!

There’s something incredibly refreshing about diving into a new project.

For the next four months, I will be diving into Jooners.  I can’t promise I will always be flawless, but I can promise transparency.  I’ll share with you my best and my worst dives as I determine just how many ways I can incorporate Jooners into my daily life.  In short, I will be practicing organization to the nth degree.  My goal:  to save time and eliminate paper.

Today I created my first sign up sheet, and, it ended up more of an assignment sheet than a sign up sheet.  The task – Wednesday evening caregivers to watch over my son while I attend class.  Necessary info. – dates, times, names and emails.  I created this sheet as a shift sheet and it was super simple to select the dates and enter the information.  Time spent – about six minutes for this very basic sheet.  Minus the rookie learning curve, I estimate the total time next time would be closer to four minutes.

My thoughts…

Jooners sheet creation is delightfully simple and I saved myself at least six random reminder and thank you emails to my sitters, friends and family.  While this isn’t a typical sign up sheet, it is definitely organization and collaboration.

A fun fact and rule of thumb about diving – the simpler a dive looks when executed, the higher the score. Jooners organized this task simply and beautifully; I would award a high score.

The bottom line:  I used Jooners as a means to remind friends and family of a simple, and important, task.  It was beautiful.  Want to join?  Dive in.
