The Friday Workbox system is a system for organizing and processing all of those actionable "to-do" papers that are part of any kind of work. It is both a physical tool and lessons in the skills of organizing. At Organize 365®, work is defined as what a person does for the majority of the week. We have two major categories of Friday Workboxes - Business and Education.

Newly updated as of August 2021, the Business Friday Workbox is a flexible, customizable paper organizing system with all of the training and support needed to be successful in learning new skills. The upgraded Business Friday Workbox System features a desktop box with a Friday Workbox logo - available in Classic Navy, Basic Black, Vintage Plum, Slate Gray, or Sapphire Blue. In order to provide education on the Friday Workbox system, your purchase also includes an upgraded dashboard experience with access to multiple training videos. The training videos include information on adapting the Friday Workbox for corporate, entrepreneur, direct sales, professional organizer, real estate, and volunteer jobs. Every Friday Workbox also includes exclusive access to a supportive community for sharing ideas, asking questions, networking, and maximizing your Workbox productivity. 

The Education Friday Workbox is available as a Teacher Friday Workbox (with bonus administrator information) or as a Homeschool Friday Workbox. These education systems are fully functional, but will be upgraded to a more robust training as well - coming in 2022. Any current purchase will automatically receive the upgraded materials as they become available. 

Friday Workboxes Are For Organizing Your Work

The Friday Workbox is a comprehensive organizational solution with everything you need to physically organize your papers and to learn all the skills of being proactive and productive in your work. It is a physical product that stores ideas and assignments to keep your desk free of paper. It also includes online lessons to teach the skill of organizing. Using this external brain ensures that you are spending your time proactively engaged with your work, rather than reacting to the latest crisis. You will learn to track all of your active work, proactively plan your week, and increase the strength of your organizational skills.  

If you are familiar with the Sunday Basket® System for managing household paper, it will be easy to master your Friday Workbox. The two share some similarities such as focusing on actionable papers and the use of the 1.0 and 2.0 Slash Pockets. However, Friday Workboxes are focused on work or passion projects.

Organize 365® believes that “work,” paid or unpaid, takes on many different forms, which is why the Business Friday Workbox is designed to be customizable to your specific role. The system contains a combination of physical and digital learning tools to help you create lasting organizational success in your workspace.

Friday Workbox vs. Sunday Basket®: What’s The Difference?

You are probably wondering how the Friday Workbox differs from the Sunday Basket®. When you think of the Sunday Basket®, what pops into your head? Bills, letters, medical information, finances, and everything in between, right?

The Sunday Basket® is built for organizing the home. Actionable household paperwork is kept in your Sunday Basket®.

The Friday Workbox, on the other hand, is all about organizing your work!

The New Golden Hour – (Friday at 2 pm)

All week long, the Friday Workbox will capture your actionable papers, to-dos, and other incoming paperwork. Then, at the end of the day Friday, it is time to process, make decisions, and plan your upcoming week. In most business settings, 2 pm is the ideal time. That’s very specific! The last hour of the week is most effectively spent reviewing and planning.  Most people are not highly focused at the end of the week, but it is the perfect time to review the current week and prepare for the next week.

The Friday Workbox generally requires at least one hour of attention every week. For every minute you spend planning, you GAIN five in execution. This means, one hour spent planning and preparing on Friday saves you five hours next week. 

We welcome any Friday Workbox system purchasers to join us in our exclusive online community, the Friday Workbox Club, on Fridays from 2:00-3:30 pm EST. Each weekly session is hosted by a Friday Workbox Certified Organizer. This is an accountability and co-working time to support the effective use of your Friday Workbox. The sessions are recorded and can be watched on demand. 

Reviewing The Week & Planning Ahead

Some of you may still be thinking, “But why choose Friday?” and there are two reasons:

  1. Friday is the optimal time to review the current week and plan for what needs to be done the following week. Looking back confirms that all important tasks from this week are either done or rescheduled. Planning ahead ensures a prospective analysis of the upcoming week, and saves time when Monday morning rolls around again.
  2. Thoroughly reviewing the current workload and proactively planning the upcoming week frees your brain to relax during the weekend hours. Establishing habits of responding to emails and confirming future appointments on Friday gives a feeling of completion to the current week. Planning your work schedule for the upcoming week ahead of time means that you can approach Monday ready to begin the work that matters most. 

Friday Workbox Training Portal

Pre-recorded training is available once you select and purchase your workbox. You will receive access to an online dashboard with coaching videos for multiple kinds of work and workplaces. You will get a fine-tuned and in-depth training so that you will be able to customize the Friday Workbox to be the most effective and impactful for you

BUSINESS FRIDAY WORKBOXES

The training includes lessons on the four kinds of work and the tools to make progress in all of them. Using this external brain ensures that you are spending your time proactively engaged with your work.

The Business Friday Workbox system includes training videos for corporate, direct sales, entrepreneurs, professional organizers, and real estate work settings. Additional videos may be added in the future to further assist purchasers to customize their Friday Workboxes.

EDUCATION FRIDAY WORKBOXES:

The Homeschool Friday Workbox is a way for a parent who is the primary homeschool teacher and lesson planner to organize the paperwork for planning learning for homeschool students. This workbox is designed to focus on different subject areas to allow the homeschool teacher to plan and deliver the curriculum and assignments. Depending on the number of students in the homeschool setting, the slash pockets can be used for multiple students or to plan farther in advance.
 
The Teacher Friday Workbox is designed for a teacher or school administrator who works in a school district. The Teacher Friday Workbox focused on organizing and reviewing the administrative paperwork, not lesson planning. This workbox is designed to help manage the active paperwork for school events, discipline and referral paperwork, handbooks and policies, field trips, professional development, and school administration tasks.
