I Think I’m Depending A Little Too Much On Post It Notes
I don't know about you guys, but I have a little bit on my plate at work right now. Sure, it could be worse, but it's just more than normal. So I try to keep myself in line by reminding myself of my various tasks by writing things down on Post It notes. And it turns out, I have several things to remember and my desk is starting to look a little strange. I've even got notes around my computer in my studio, notes in my actual planning book, notes stuck to my phone, it never stops!
And most of the time it's not even something that serious. Like, remember to call someone or pick up milk. Sometimes it is important because it's something like a blog idea, I'll always write those down. If I don't, I'll just forget them, and that's just a waste of everybody's time.
But now it just seems like it's too much. Maybe I need to do something to get more organized? Well, it's not that I'm disorganized. I know where stuff is and where it goes all that. I know what buttons to push and what stuff to get done. It just LOOKS a little chaotic because there are little pink pieces of paper all over my desk and monitor.
What do you do to remember special tasks? Do you write down things like me, or do you make an alert on your phone, or an alert in email? What helps you stay organized and in control at work?
