One of the things I like best about working in the digital marketing/digital media space is that you can literally work from anywhere. If I’m on the road, it is easy to pop open my laptop and quickly connect to a wifi connection a just about any of the gajillion places offering wifi now (side note: I’m amazed that Chick-fil-A offers wifi. Haven’t tried it, but that might be an interesting place to work from. I can see it now: I’ll take a Chick-fil-A sandwich and a wireless signal please!).
The downside of being able to work from anywhere is staying organized. Earlier today, I read a nice piece on Fast Company’s Work Smart 2 blog written by Gina Trapani entitled “Staying Organized After Being on the Road.” The post has some good tips/info for road workers to help them avoid the loss of information and time when they transition back into their office. While I don’t work on the road a lot, I still am susceptible to making poor use of time and losing a valuable receipt or two. With that in mind, here’s a great video from Gina as she discusses the situation with one of her readers, Daniel Beck of WebFaction:
