My previous boss used Post-it® notes as his primary (maybe only) to do list. On the inside his (paper) notebook he had a small supply of Post-it® notes where he would capture – and follow-up – on tasks and ideas. It seemed to be very effective for him.
I’m keen to establish a discipline around using an electronic tdl, but I recognise that I’m not getting there in one step. So, at least on an interim basis, I’m toying with the idea of transferring those unfinished tasks on to Post-it® notes. The idea is to appeal to my preference for visual thinking and to exploit the nagging, pester power of the Post-it® note.
Any thoughts, tips, alternative approaches? Or, is it just me?
