Business Friday Workbox®
Make the Invisible Work Visible
I love to help discover what people are uniquely gifted and created to do.
What I have found inside of everything I have tried to organize is there is always 4 kinds of work we are doing. This is what we identify here in the Business Friday Workbox®.
Because I’m a teacher, I know that you need to have some structure in your job in order to be able to have the ability to do the creative things that you’re uniquely created to do. There are four different roles or four different things that you’re doing inside of your “work” all the time. You usually are only thinking about one or two of those and sometimes several of these are completely hidden to you and every single person in your company.
Using the Business Friday Workbox will help to make this invisible work visible to you and to others in your company.

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.
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, 3 pm is the ideal time. That’s very specific! The last 2 hours 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.
Some of you may still be thinking, “But why choose Friday?” and there are two reasons:
- 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.
- 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.
In order to provide education on the Friday Workbox® system, your purchase also includes a dashboard experience with access to multiple training videos. The training videos include information on adapting the Business Friday Workbox® for corporate, entrepreneur, direct sales, professional organizer, real estate, and volunteer jobs.
