- Hi Laura.
When you get a good idea? Post-it. When you think of something you might forget later? Post-it. When you want to remember to do something? Post-it. Deadline, recipe, URL, bill, phone number? Post-it, post-it, post-it, post-it,post-it!!
And that, my friends, is how this week my "mobile office" folder came to look like this:
I'd like to show you how I turned my post-it pahlooza into an actionable, well organized, weekly plan. Hooray for do-able!
1. OK, first off, I collected all the notes together - for me that wasn't just the ones in my folder, there were some on my desk, a couple on the window above my desk, one on my phone, one next to my bed and two on the fridge. Yikes.
2. One of the best parts - I threw out the post-its I'd already actioned. Go me!
3. Organise. Sorting the notes into groups is something you will tailor to your needs. For me, I sorted things by "can do straight away, need to do soon" and so on.
4. I had a number of things that could be done in the background, so I actioned those immediately - upgrading my iOS and downloading some image files. This is a great way to start any to-do - with those "quick wins". It gives you a kick-start. If there are things you can action immediately (without being distracted from your Post-it Sea for too long) do them now!
