  • I use the heck out of Post-Its and I agree they are very useful.

    However, every few days, I go through the clutter around my work spots, looking for the gems that don't really add any value to being posted anymore. Phone numbers, appointments way in the future, tasks that I need to do, all get committed to my PDA (various passwords get committed to an app on my PDA, phone numbers go into my PDA, etc.) or my Reminder System I use on my laptop (currently Outlook, but I'm looking for something better).

    Eventually, the Post-It Knowledge-base falls over. You get to a point where you can't find anything anymore and some fly off and get thrown away.

    The high tech solution is not as good for the quick note, but the low tech solution also has it's limitatations.

    • This is more for to-do lists, etc. I, too, have had the problem with scattered bits of info on post-it notes, but usually I go through some similar process of assembling them and discarding them after determining that the information is either committed to memory or a file somewhere.
