7 ways to get more out of your day

How Post-it® Notes can help you organize your day and be more productive.

  • When you’re planning your day, your first instinct might be to reach for your calendar, a large sheet of lined notebook paper or your smartphone. We suggest starting small - with a single Post-it® Note.

    At first glance, it’s easy to think a 76 mm square would be way too confining, but as you’ll soon see, paring your day down to the essentials keeps your day manageable, goal-oriented and far less stressful than an endless list.

    Start with a spiral notebook, a pack of multi-colored Post-it® Notes, a pack of Post-it® Strong Index, a notebook and pen.

    Your mission is to be looking at an emply page by the end of the day.

    To further organise your tasks using the same system, you can break them up into tabbed sections such as: Family, Financial, Home, Work, Weekend, etc.

    Stick a pad of Post-it® Super Sticky notes on the cover. That way if you have time, you can begin planning for the next day or even the next week or month.
