We all could use a little help to remember things to do. We don’t want to forget important appointments or meetings, deadlines for projects, or repeating tasks.
Electronic Reminders can be set in an electronic calender or apps like Google Keep. Use the time management system you choose in a way that works for you.
Sticky Notes can be used as reminders. Here are some ideas from the book “They Shoot Managers, Don’t They?” by Terry L. Paulsen.
Remind yourself of actions you want to do with key words (like POSITIVE FEEDBACK or BETTER LISTENING) on sticky notes to put on:
- the telephone
- your debit card
- the dashboard of your car
- the refrigerator
- the television
- the bathroom mirror
- your computer monitor
- your coffee cup
Change the messages when you catch yourself not noticing them anymore. Write keywords for goals on sticky notes to place on your calendar as a reminder. At the end of the day, write one thing you did to bring yourself closer to your goals. Then move it to the next day. Follow this procedure for a month.
On page 71 of the book, it says: “There is only one way to influence others: provide the context that invites change within the other individual.”
How can we do this?
- Ask the right questions
- Share a visual image of the vision you see
- Tell stories
You can also remind yourself to repeat a new behavior you wish to establish each time a recurring event happens. For example, breathe deeply each time you take a drink, answer the phone, use the computer mouse, look in the mirror, take a break, etc.
Visual Reminders can be a great way to remind yourself. Use a kanban board for projects, and see more ways to Keep Goals Visual and Visible and Follow Up.
