You know those handy sticky notes? You know, the ones that are supposed to remind you of important things? Well the truth is that very often they don’t do the job they are intended for, simply because they become “white noise”.
I want you to be honest with yourself. If you find these notes really effective as reminders, go ahead and keep using them.
But if you have sticky note reminders everywhere and you still don’t get those things done, it’s time to ditch them and find a better way.
Today, harvest those notes and use a different system.
Whether you use them to store information or remind you of tasks to do, there are lots of great alternatives to the ubiquitous sticky note.
