Everyone needs a reminder. You may have been plotting out your New Year’s resolution even before 2019 ended. Now that we’re more than halfway done with the first month of 2020, do you still remember them all completely? If you happen to memorize them all, then good for you, but the truth is, not everyone has a very retentive memory. Understandably, there are a lot on everyone’s minds right now, not just the resolutions themselves, but also the insurmountable load of work which may have been left off in the recent Holiday season. With that being said, nothing would be better than to keep a handy reminder around. Reminders come in many forms. Most of us have them in our cellphones. There are apps which allow you to keep tabs on your work schedules and other important events. There are also miniature calendars which may be carried around in your bag and work files, but are you seriously going to carry a calendar in your bag? It’s the 2020’s, after all. No, you need something more efficient and lightweight, you need a sticky note. While that may have sounded a bit too simplistic at first, do not let that distract you from its various uses. Here are just a few examples:
1. An effective way to note down your work pointers.
Daily routine tends to do something to you that other forms of activity may not, it can make you bored, it can make you repetitive, it can make you complacent, too complacent that you’d make the critical mistake of not listing down your important schedules and deliverables. There are people who have the luxury of owning a planner, an organizer of some sort in which they can jot down their ideas and important work information. This would obviously be practical, if it weren’t for the fact that it takes up a huge bulk of space in your bag. You need something lightweight, something that you can carry around. You need something that would allow you to take your notes with you when needed and be nimble enough to stick on memory boards for when you need to share the information with your workmates. A sticky note would let you do just that. People tend to underestimate them since they always seem to be in one of those bookstore shelves that most onlookers would ignore, perhaps it’s due to their size. But remember, big things always come in small packages, and a sticky note is a perfect example of that.
2. A fun and creative way to remind you of your work.
We’ve already discussed about the convenience and flexibility of sticky notes when it comes to writing down important details, now it’s time to discuss about its non-conventional look compared to other blank planners. Reminders, especially about work details, tend to be dull most of the time. Do you ever find yourself lulling off to sleep during meetings due to the fact that you’re just spacing out on a blank document? White space and monotonous speaker voice aside, you are perhaps hoping to liven up your business meetings. A sticky note does something that a normal notebook or a reminder can’t. They can express creativity amidst the dull corporate routine. Have you noticed that “stickies” usually come in different colors? For the most part, it is for the sake of segregating important details from the least important ones, but aside from that, it also pops out from the normal white paper, which also indicates top priority deliverables from those which were written on plain, white paper. Go for something that catches your attention, not something that puts you to sleep.
3. A creative way to communicate.
Your usual office memo and announcements would usually come in a very formal letter form. For some, it’s just your typical paperwork or office document, something that you’d glance through once, screenshot or photo copy for the record, then proceed to pass to your workmate in the other cubicle. It’s just one of those routine paperwork that happens to get handed down every once in a while. For the most part, these messages are boring, plain and simple, it adds nothing to the interest of the employees. Some memos and announcements are even a mere sentences long, a few words for some, if the one announcing knows how to convey the context proficiently. In such case, a sticky note would be more up to the job than plain paper.
4. An eco-friendly alternative to using a whole page bond paper.
Sticky notes are a lot smaller than a bond paper. They are easier to stash away and dispose of when you’re done with the business details or pointers jotted down on them. The less paper you stash, the lesser garbage you’ll add to the environment. Of course, they are still considered garbage when thrown, but when you consider throwing away a bundle of used sticky notes than a bundle of used bond paper, the mound and size is considerably noticeable. Bond papers, while useful at most in the office, are not nifty to dispose of. Your office would need a shredder in order to dispose of them in a compact manner, especially if they contain confidential details. Sticky notes, on the other hand, are always easier to conceal.
These examples may just change your mind in choosing sticky notes for the office. If you do, however, already own one, then why not share these conveniences with others? If you’re the head of a company, a sticky note would be the perfect gift for those corporate events. We may suggest the Royce Sticky Flags as a go-to choice.
