I work in a very demanding fast paced industry—publishing. With ongoing daily deadlines and working on multiple titles it is very easy for things to fall through the cracks. Sometimes I think my brain could not possible retain any more information without exploding. Then add maintaining a blog full-time—well you can just imagine. I purchased this note pad a few years ago and it sat on my desk at home more or less collecting dust.
Then I got it in to my head to bring it work and I am so glad I did! I use this everyday. Seriously this note pad is a life saver. Yes I can do the same thing on my computer but the first thing is I would forget to look and the second thing is—some times it is faster and easier to just write things down. And that is exactly what I do. At the end of the day I write down all the things I need to do the next day. And then the next morning when I come in I have my list and do not have to worry that I forgot something.
Yes sometime this still happens but so much less so, now that I have this daily organizer on my desk. Plus they are super affordable at $12.00 and will last for months. So if you work in demanding job like I do be sure to head to Garance Dore’s shop and get one of these beauties. And how do you stay on top of things at work?
