Some people love to shop the malls. Some spend hours in Crate n’ Barrel. Me? I like office supply stores! There’s a Staples close to my house that I frequent. Today, I found a cool new tool that cost only $2.89. I am sure they have been around a while, but this is the first time I saw them at my Staples.
My find: Post-It Sortable Cards. They don’t really stick to themselves, but can be stuck on other things. You can use one card per "chunk" of work. Take an hour or two to attack a chuck and burn through one card. Feel the joy in taking the card down and ripping it to beautiful shreds.
I got the smaller 4X3 ones, but they do have other sizes and colors. Here is the product website. I think this is a cool product! You can visually see what you are up to and also stack and carry the cards anywhere. Put a few in your day planner and bring them to meetings. Hand them to employees when you delegate chunked stuff.
Here is a picture from the 3M website:
These cool new cards can help you become a chunk king. He he he. (or queen) If you want to try a free sample, I found this link on about.com.
