During my seminary days, I made up “sticky note timelines” to help me stay on top of what was due next. It also helped me prepare for long-term projects. Depending on my whimsical organization at the time, the different colors meant something. Or not. There was a sense of accomplishment to pull off another note from the timeline… I felt like I was doing some kind of forward motion!
So now I am faced with a to-do list that is overwhelming me. I’m getting ready to break out the sticky notes! I started with the ones on my computer desk top (and I actually got the first one done this morning!) I’m thinking, though, that I need to have “real” sticky notes to keep me focused. Um. And also off of the computer.
And on that note, I’m off on my next task!
