3M must love me because I love Post-Its. Stickies, in other words. Whenever I get a flash of inspiration or I need to jot a few ideas down for a story or a blog or even make a small list of things I need at the store, I usually write on a Post-It.
Post-Its are like temporary lists, because when I complete my list, I can throw it away and start fresh.
Sometimes my "office" is filled with various notes to myself or small lists of goals I want to accomplish in the next week or month.
Can "to-do" lists be too lengthy though and one can never accomplish everything on it? Oh, sure. I've been accused many times of creating "to-do" lists that could never be completed because I've got three kids to raise and other jobs to get to. But that doesn't mean I still don't create lists. I create lists to organize and prioritize my goals, something I learned from Earl Nightingale.
And that, my friend, is for another day, another blog.
