Have you ever planned what you wanted to do that day only to find at the end of the day you did everything BUT what you had planned?
I was visiting my amazing friend, Theresa Rose, in Minneapolis. She showed me a unique way to know what you want to do each day and stay on track. Very unique. Using Post-It Notes!
She has a home office and in her office is a fireplace with 5 tiles at the top. She takes unique colored post-it-notes and labels them: Marketing, Sales, Network, Social Media, Admin, Book, etc. She then looks at her calendar to see if she has a speaking event that week. If she does, she puts a ‘Job’ Post-It Note on the day’s tile. Then she takes her other Post-It Notes of tasks she wants to accomplish that week and puts them in the ‘am’ or ‘pm’ spot on her tiles.
She can just glance at the tile to know what she needs to do. Genius!
So, of course, with her blessing, I did what she did! I used the cupboard above my desk and there are 6 doors. Perfect. One for each day Monday through Saturday.
Now I know exactly what to do every day.
Theresa also has a very cool way to make sure she does what she says she’s going to do. She puts a bright-colored Post-It Note on her computer that says, “Back On Track”!
Do you need a new way to look at your week? If so, give the post-it-note thing a try!
