Time to part with that Posty Pad-Time Management Tip

This is an advanced technique, not for the weak, or someone who has an unnatural connection to those little post it pads.


Hey, I like a note that I can stick around my computer as much as the next guy, but here’s the problem.  Those things fall off.  Yes, they do. For one reason, you keep them on your computer for so long, they eventually just loose the desire to stick around.

They not only fall off, they become part of the background.  Like the light next to your computer, or that doodad that’s been sitting on your desk taking up space for so long. This is a problem because you lose track of what the notes said. Then, something that should have been done doesn’t get done.  And if you never needed to do it in the first place, why even write the note to begin with?

A much better time and frustration saver for you would be to have one little spiral notebook, buy them cheapo in the drug store.  Keep this notebook in one spot, like that little front pocket in your backpack or briefcase.  One more advantage is that if you like using post it notes as a checklist, the notebook can be carried with you without fear of anything falling off when you are not looking.

Every time you need to make a note of what you need to do, you have one place to capture that thought.  This will save you tons of time and keep you from missing important actions.
