Post-it notes are great for jotting down quick notes to use as reminders for things that need to be taken care of. I love Post-it notes and use them often, but the important thing to keep in mind is not to let those post-it notes turn into clutter.
Set aside some time to gather all your notes into one neat stack. Go through each note one-by-one and take care of what’s on it. If you have a name and number on a post-it – add that person to your contact management system and toss the note. Did you jot down an event date and time on a post-it? Add the event to your calendar and, again, toss the note. If something written on the note can’t be taken care of in the moment, add it to your calendar for a set date and time so you can get it taken care of.
Don’t let your post-its become clutter. Make sure you go through them at the end of each day, or if you don’t write very many, once a week should be fine.
