At Ilios Digital Organizing, we make sure technology works for you. Specializing in information organizing, we focus on streamlining your workflow in order to make you more productive, helping your business grow and prosper. Our goal is to cut through information overload and reduce the stress of clutter so you can get out from under the admin side of your business and start focusing on what you love to do. We work with you to utilize the right technology for the right task, whether its eliminating your hundreds of unread emails each day, organizing computer files, or standardizing your workflow. We want to make running your business easy and effective. No more searching for documents, missed follow-ups, or leaving money on the table…because it’s time to get organized and let technology work FOR you.
Let’s organize your workflow and find ways to automate your processes. By reducing duplicate admin tasks and streamlining your business, you will have the time and energy to focus on what really matters.
No more emails falling through the cracks. No more forgetting to contact clients. We’ll put software and systems in place to keep you organized and on top of communication.
Being organized means you can find files and email quickly and easily. And if a client requests a document, you’ll know right where it is! Say good-bye to recreating documents and scrambling to find an invoice.
When your digital devices are in sync and your information is accessible and shareable, you have more time to focus on clients, make sales, and grow important relationships.
Staying organized is an ongoing process, and getting out from under the clutter doesn't have to be done alone. We're here to encourage, coach, and guide you to a streamlined workflow and a more successful business.
At Ilios Digital, we partner with you to find the right tool, for the right task, at the right time. Having the right kind of program or software, and knowing how to use it, will be the difference between “getting by” and getting ahead in your business.
Thank you sooooo much for your help with my email! It was just the push I needed, and your approach was so simple that I had literally finalized my email organization by Fri. My inbox is EMPTY and I’m using my Action folders religiously now ☺ Of course, I have more emails to sort through, but it feels so good to have an organizational system moving forward. Thanks again!
I finally feel like I can get a handle on my emails. With everything falling into my main email I get overwhelmed and I know emails get missed and that is not a good business practice!! I really appreciate your time, clear information, and follow up email with instruction about what you taught me in case i forget :), your patience in teaching me how to manage it on my own and knowing you are just a phone call or email away if I get stuck!!!! I am actually looking forward to tackling my emails!

We all have habits. Good ones and bad ones. As we come up to the new year you’ll see people trying to start new habits. Maybe an exercise program, maybe a reading routine, maybe a commitment to post to social media once a week. I read somewhere that setting a new habit takes 21 days. This could be true, or it could just be that the longer you do something, the more likely you are to keep doing it.
November is a big month for habits for me. I’m a writer – and mostly write for myself – which can be hard when it comes to consistency. Some days, weeks, I just don’t feel like writing. Sometimes I’m not inspired, sometimes I’m too tired, there are a lot of excuses for those days I don’t get any words down. Without a publisher or deadline for my work, it’s up to me to stay motivated.
This is why November is an important month for me. In November there is an online project called National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). The primary goal of NaNoWriMo is to write 50,000 words in the month of November.
I’ve accomplished that goal several years, but this year I am using November as my month to reset the habit of writing, which I’ve fallen out of. My goal for NaNoWriMo this year is to write new content every day. No excuses, just repetition to rebuild the habit of writing.
Staying organized is a habit too. Sure, there is the original goal to meet, whether that is organizing your pantry or closet or computer, but there is also the daily upkeep of an organized space. The reminder to put your keys on the drop zone every night. The routine of picking up your clothes before you go to bed. The habit of deleting unwanted emails after reading.
And it isn’t easy to establish these new habits. It takes time and practice. Sometimes more than those 21 days. There can be a lot of reasons why you don’t stick with your goal. Maybe you don’t feel like it that day. Maybe you’re too tired. Maybe lots of things get in the way.
But you can do it!
Build your habit on your own or with a support system to help you through the rough patches. Just because you miss a day or forget about your new habit for a moment, don’t worry! You can pick right up where you left off.
Habits are all about consistency and repetition. There’s no time like the present to get started.

A clean desk is a sign of a disturbed mind.
I saw that once on a coffee mug and laughed. Of course, it’s not true. It isn’t, right? : )
Regardless of whether you are working at home or in an office, we all have a desk of sorts. It might be the dining room table or a dedicated desk in your private office. When it’s clean, work is easier. You can find what you need quickly and the things that need your attention are front and center. All things that can lead to increased productivity.
The same is true for your digital desktop. Clear away the unnecessary icons and save the documents to the documents folder instead of on the desktop. Get rid of old downloads and program icons you no longer need. Doing so will provide you a clean slate when you sit down at your desk in the morning.
And a clean, organized desk, is a sign of a productive mind.
