I'm not so much of a list person. But I do need reminders of tasks I have to complete. I have software that I think works well, but I find I tend to ignore it. I don't enjoy it.
So this week I decided to try something new. I put all my work-related tasks that are due this week on post-it notes and hung them on my wall in front of my desk.
It seems to be working for me! I love that it's non-listy. I l love that it's visual. Also, I actually get real satisfaction pulling a post-it note off the wall when I complete a task (unlike checking off listed items -- that does nothing for me).
I actually feel genuine motivation to complete tasks I always procrastinate.
Today (Monday) I was able to pull down three of the notes -- two of which are my very least favorite work tasks.
I'm pretty sure this system is a keeper!
