Day 1 is simple. It's all about organization. How are you going to organize the paper you will inevitably collect as you go about gathering your data? Maybe you will use a 3 ring notebook or other paper filing system. Maybe you are tech savvy and will scan it all into electronic files. I am the "Queen of Too Much Paper," so before I start bringing a lot of more paper into my office I need a way to manage it. I'll be using an extra 3 ring binder, I've got a couple of packages of tabs for separating the data and one of these, 5 decorative binder covers just to keep it organized and fun. If you don't have what you need in your office, there is still time to head to Wal-Mart, Office Depot, the Dollar Store or wherever you get your school and office supplies so you can be ready for Day 1 of the Daily Data Challenge.
