I’ve recently added a new weapon to my personal daily toolbox: The “What’s Up?” list.
A “What’s Up?” list reminds you of things that are going on in your life that you don’t want to forget and aren’t evident from your project and action lists. In a way, it’s a tickler file that focuses on now instead of the future.
- Project X is only partially there
- Project Y has been announced
- Lost a little weight, could lose a little more and add muscle
- Team will probably be talking about Subject X a lot soon
- Borderlands 2!!!
(the last item is actually on my list
What do you do? Scan and modify it everyday so you can keep a general idea of what the hell is going on. Seems most useful for describing what’s between the lines of your other lists and calendar items.
Hopefully this makes sense and works well for you!
