Yes, I am multitasker of the extreme variety. I like the challenge and my ultimate goal is to get everything done so I can lie on the sofa with my wine and read. UNINTERRUPTED!!!!
Multitasking requires focus , determination and for me, NOTES.
Awhile back I figured I was wasting a lot of paper with all my note writing and rewriting, because a typical day of multitasking requires repeating a lot of things you did, just the day before!
So I came up with the idea of reusable notes and just I keep them out on the counter until that particular thing is done. I even use a reusable list for packing all the creature comforts I wish to remember when leaving on a trip.
They are bright and hard to miss, so when I find my body in the bathroom but my brain is still back in the living room and I have lost my focus, my notes bring me back to the tasks at hand.
Even if I have to go back to the kitchen, where my notes are, at least I can begin again, body and brain in one place and off we go together to the next task!
It never occurred to me that this was a clever idea until a client noticed my notes on the counter and said ” I use your note system now! “
Ok, so it is system and I use it as a bit of a game, all notes off counter means HELLO SOFA! and where is my glass of wine?
