Write It Down

Happy Monday…the start of another week!

I begin every new work week updating my lists. I keep two lists, one for general to-do items, and a second for my weekly sales objectives. And I don’t keep either list on a computer or electronic device.

I believe the simple act of putting pen to paper makes my goals more meaningful. Writing things down increases my commitment to the cause. These lists also become an important visual representation of my weekly progress.

I compose my weekly to-dos on a flip-chart, and I write my sales objectives on a paper form. I usually keep completed flip-chart pages around for a few weeks, and I file the sales forms in a binder. The completed lists become a source of inspiration, and have often led to new ideas (and new lists!).

I’m currently renovating my office, which got me thinking about the future state of these lists. I’m considering the purchase of an “old school” overhead projector to replace the flip-charts. I like keeping things decidedly low-tech, especially since I already spend so much time on the computer 🙂

Now it’s time to start my week. At least I can cross item #1 off my to-do list (write new blog post)!

    Fantastic goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely fantastic.
    I really like what you’ve acquired here, certainly like what you are stating and the
    way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you
    still take care of to keep it wise. I cant
    wait to read far more from you. This is actually a tremendous site.

    I believe everything composed was very reasonable.

    However, consider this, what if you added a little content?
    I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid., however suppose
    you added a post title to possibly get people’s attention? I mean Write It Down | MES
    Made Simple is a little plain. You might look at
    Yahoo’s front page and see how they create article
    titles to grab people to click. You might
    add a video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about what you’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
