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!

What I'm Reading . . .

  • "Raising Financially Fit Kids", Joline Godfrey
    Common sense ideas and insight into raising kids who are wll-prepared to manage their own finances as young adults.
  • "The Success Principles: How To Get From Where You Are to Where You Want To Be" by Jack Canfield
    This book really got me excited about pursuing my goals and growing my business. There is a heavier emphasis on materialism than what I am comfortable with, but overall this is an inspiring book.
  • "The Organized Executive", by Stephanie Winston
  • "No B.S. Time Management for Enterpreneurs" by Dan Kennedy
