I need to see it.
- Organizing: Make it visual. Whether clear, color-coded or quirky, containers that keep things visible and/or attract the eye are a hit with the I need to see it personal style set. Bridging the gap between visible and out of sight, out of mind, these containers help those of us who are visually motivated to create order out of chaos.
- List-making: Tangible reminders. Those with the I need to see it style often prefer paper planning to the convenient but out-of-sight electronic variety. Paper makes it easy to subdivide and color code. This summer, I’m trying out a notebook system with colorful tabs. This allows me to separate my lists by topic, but still keep them all in one place, as well as minimizing the pile-up of notes on my kitchen counter.
- Goal-setting: Write them where you’ll see them. As much as possible, I try to connect my goals to my calendar. While “finish writing my novel” isn’t a goal I will accomplish this week, “spend an hour writing” is, and, if I put it on my calendar, it’s more likely to happen. Especially if it’s one of my Big 3.
