The Post-It Wall

I’m instituting a Post-It Wall system of organization. I’m putting my tasks on post-its and then sticking them on the wall. This system makes my tasks seem more urgent. It bothers me way more to see a post-it on the wall than to see a task written on a piece of notebook paper. This irritation is motivation to actually do the task.

Hopefully the “system” may get a little more elaborate as time goes on. That is, I’ll add ways to prioritize tasks.

It’s decidedly low-tech, but results matter more than technology. We’ll see how it works in the next few weeks.
