Pretty much every office in the world has these little sticky papers. You probably even have your own little stack nearby, right as you’re reading this! They keep us organized, on task, and up to date.
Post-it notes are addicting. They’re fun and childlike, and it’s because they’re a little game. You write your note, and then you get to peel off each little square of paper. Not only that, but they STICK to something. What’s not to love? Kids love Post-it Notes, so do adults!
Post-it Notes have shaped the way we communicate. Think about their small size. You’ve got a limited little space to communicate a thought, note, idea, or memo. Are they the precursors to Twitter’s 140 character limit, perhaps?
If you need to create a fast and agile to-do list, these little canary-yellow flags might be your best choice. Each Post-it Note is a task, and when all the tasks are lined up neatly on the wall, it’s easy to see how much work you’ve got in front of you. When you’re done, throw it out. Need to move it to tomorrow? MOVE it to tomorrow! You’ll be amazed at how much fun it is to get stuff done.
