Right now, my desk is a disaster area. Seems like just last week, it was really tidy, but we all know it was more than a week ago.
I have piles of genealogy print outs on top of my computer. On the monitor base, I have a stack of business cards I may or may not ever need. I have stacks of sticky notes underneath and beside that - reminding me to do things that may or may not have ever gotten done, keeping track of story ideas for various things I'm working on, and a couple with hints for other stuff.
On my actual pad of sticky notes, I have a reminder to walk my mom through some Excel stuff on Monday. Next to that, there's a freshly de-padded note to put something in the checkbook. Next to that is the checkbook. (Hey, the checkbook has only been there since last night when I remembered I have bills to pay this morning.)
I have a dayplanner on my desk, too. I keep buying dayplanners and never using them. This year's is green. And right now, it has the same things written in it that are on my wall calendar.
And smack in the middle is a lovely card a very good friend sent me. It's a puppydog romping through deep snow, and above the dog, it says "We conquer by continuing. - George Matheson." So if I ever get discouraged about the self-publishing process, I'll remember to not give up.
It's a wise thing to remember.
What's on your sticky notes? Do you even use them? Please tell me some of you are more organized than I am. (Not that I'm totally unorganized - I just go for controlled chaos as an organization method. LOL)
