The Dreaded Sticky Note
Sometimes when I walk into a client's office, I think it is raining sticky notes. For years, organizers have been warning clients, friends and neighbors about the damage these ubiquitous pieces of almost-sticky paper can do to your organizing systems and sanity. But, no matter how many sticky notes I remove from an office, there is always a fresh stash at the next session.
Regular readers of "The Organized Entrepreneur" blog may recall that I spoke at career day at a local elementary school in early February. When I asked the kids whether sticky notes were good or bad, they all shouted "baaaadddd" and told me all sorts of horror stories that their parents would never, ever tell an organizer. I breathed a sigh of relief. Future generations have learned from our mistakes. Someday, there will be a world free of sticky notes. For the past month, I have been walking around with this euphoric belief that professional organizers really can change the world.
Today, my bubble burst. I was on the phone with (what I consider to be) a very organized colleague. She was looking for some information she wanted to give me, but it was lost in a stack of . . . yes, you guessed it . . .sticky notes!
