This is what the dash of my car looks like most of the time. If it’s not on a sticky note; it doesn’t happen. I pretty much have to capture the thought so I can transfer it to my calendar or to do list or it just flies away.
Of course, I have no idea how fast I’m going or how much gas I have, but I know what I need to do.
I have a lot of lists. Work lists, home lists, grocery lists, long term things to do lists. Once it’s on a note, I don’t have to worry about it until I’m ready to act on it. My phone is full of lists too…about 50 of them. Sometimes, I combine my lists to neaten things up. It also makes it very satisfying to mark things off.
See how easy it is to get a list going? I have them everywhere.
Then there are my book lists. I have several of those. My paranormal library list, books to read list, Dawn’s books to search for list, books I’ve read list, books for Bryon to read list. It really never ends. There’s a list for every topic.
If you like making lists, capturing and organizing information as much as I do, then you might dig Evernote . You can get it on your iPhone and your computer and it syncs. It’s awesome.
Of course none of THESE things in these pictures are in Evernote. I need lots of different ways to collect and organize. One size definitely does not fit all.
I’ll bet Art Fry had lots of things floating around in his head too because he’s credited with inventing the Post-it_note . Boy, am I glad. Otherwise, my life would be a big mess.
