Why 'To-Do' lists are more effective than 'Visual Reminders'
Visual reminders can be helpful, yet when they get used for too many things they become clutter.
This clutter makes us feel overwhelmed, breaks our focus and can make us lose sight of our top priorities.
We tend to think 'Out of Sight, Out of Mind', yet let's consider the role of the 'To-Do' list to help us to remember what our priorities are instead.
Writing down our tasks and then putting away the file or project to where it belongs means we will remember to do it.
And with projects out of the way we can then focus more clearly on tasks individually, thus being even more effective.
My gift of Tiger Tables and the Time Matrix tools that I share with my newsletter readers is great for keeping priorities clear. They should be used in conjunction with your day-planner.

And remember to make sure that if a task is truly important, if it has a deadline, and if it will take more than 20 minutes, that you put it in your calendar. 'Getting the Stones Down' as they say.
If you having trouble, are overwhelmed and need help to get started in the right direction, contact me anytime.
