Post-Its: Part One of a Series
Yes, I confess I have a love affair going on with post-it notes. Truth be told, I have a serious jones for nearly all office supplies, but post-its – oh! I adore these little stickies. They’re just so practical!
I use them to make my daily lists, remind myself of things I need to do, like pick up foodstuffs, make bank deposits, eat lunch (yes, sometimes I need reminding!), and I love to keep a supply by the phone, the desk, the bed, and the couch. They’re perky.
Post-its gaily poke out of nearly every reference book I have, including my recipe book collection. Their happy, useful presence somehow makes me happy too. And they come in all shapes and sizes. I tend toward your more classic yellow post-it, but that doesn’t stop me from indulging my wild-child side with some neons and my uber-categorizer with some lined stickies.
And not only do I get to play with them all around the house, I use them in my work, too. Oh, they’re meant for work? Hm.
Well, lucky for me, then.
I use stickies in all kinds of ways in my facilitation and engagement work. My favourite is the Affinity Process. It’s a process that really seems to resonate with people (and I secretly think it has a lot to do with the post-its).
