Using This Accountability and Help Area
  • Your own training and accountability path goes right here, in the
    TRO Training Accountability and Help board.

    Get feedback from other TROers and aspiring coaches. This public accountability can make a huge difference, increasing the pace and quality of your change. I respond here almost daily, too, especially as this brand new forum gets up and running. Free coaching. :-)

    General questions about TRO go here instead:
    TRO General Discussion

    Getting Started

    1) Create a new discussion thread with your name or username.
    (Click "NEW POST" in blue near upper right corner of page.)

    2) Take digital "BEFORE" pictures of your office space. Stand in the middle and snap images as you slowly rotate in one direction to get the whole picture. Phone cameras are fine, no need to be fancy.

    3) Use an online image resizer like http://resizeimage.net/ or http://www.simpleimageresizer.com/ to reduce your photos before uploading.

    4) Post your "BEFORE" pictures here. It helps you get good, specific recommendations on office organization.
    (To post, hit "Reply" in your topic, describe the photos, then click "Additional Options" underneath your reply. Use the "Attach" line to select each picture to upload, click "more attachments" for each additional photo. Then hit the "Post" button.)

    5) Post training questions here and get answers from the community.

    6) Post your goals here, then post daily to mark your progress. Others can/will join in to see how you're doing.

    7) Post your "AFTER" photos here right after completing the office sweep, then again after the 21 days of accountability (when your overflow inbox is gone).

    8) Daily, post the following metrics to this forum:
    a) Control score (0%-100%, how "in control" of your time and tasks you feel right now);
    b) Number of minutes it took you to do your Daily Review (should be 5 or less);
    c) How much time spent processing/triaging since last report; and
    d) Number of items in each of your approved collecting points.

  • Just wanted to let you know that the Microsoft Image Resizer doesn't work on Vista. Here are some links I found for resizers for Vista:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/phototoysclone/

    http://xemico.com/photogadget/freeware.html

    http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/prish-image-resizer-powertoy-windows-xp-vista/

    http://www.vso-software.fr/products/image_resizer/image_resizer.php

    I have no connection with any of these sites; just found them in a search. I've tried the sourceforge one and the xemico one and they seem to work well, but, of course, I take no responsibility for how they work for anyone else.
