Effortless Organizing Solutions

Organizing doesn't have to involve hours or days. Sometimes just doing a little each day will make a bigger impact over time. And, you will create a new habit which is what is missing in your life--the organizing habit.

Ready, set, go!!

When I can't sleep because that little voice is telling me everything I need to remember or remember to do, I use post-it notes.

I jot down a word or more just so I remember the next morning when I look at them. Then I stick my post-it notes on top of my laptop (I use a docking station and a separate monitor). As I complete a task I remove the post-it note from the top of my laptop. If I haven't completed a note by the end of the day I transfer the task to my Outlook tasks.

But, somehow seeing the post-it notes on top of my laptop is a huge visual reminder for me and it keeps me on top of my tasks. Removing the notes from my laptop is even more satisfying than checking it off in Outlook.
