One of my goals for this month is to find a better system of dealing with papers. Keeping track of tasks is one part of that, and I decided to tackle it first!
This is something I just started doing yesterday, but it's been working so well that I wanted to post about it.
I still have a master task list, but I needed a better way to keep track of the things I wanted to do each day. I picked a few high-priority tasks, wrote each one on a Post-It note, and stuck them to the wall behind my desk:
(Please excuse the chipped paint!)
Now I can easily see what needs to be done today. It's also easy to add tasks as things come up during the day. Finally, if I don't get a particular task done, there's no need to re-write it on the next day's list. I simply leave the Post-It note on the wall.
It's also really satisfying when I complete a task, because I get to crumple up the note and throw it away!
