It seems like I’m hearing lots of people forgetting simple things lately. “I walked into the next room, and forgot why I went in there,” a friend said to me recently. Or my BBArtisans team members tell me they take photos and write up their descriptions for a new item, but forget to upload the information into their Etsy shop.
So, I have a solution: Make a list. I actually love list making, and I know lots of other art journalers who do too. A group of art journalers I know used to create “listed” artwork and share them on List It Tuesday, over at Aimee’s blog, Artsyville.
|Sunday's view of my hott notes|
I use hott notes. It’s a great place to put your lists (and more) on your desktop. It’s so handy to be able to see your lists, especially if you’re at the computer a lot like me. I continuously change or add to them, keeping them up to date. Hott notes is free and you can find it online. Another digital to-do list is called Remember the Milk. I used it a few years ago and it’s great if you don’t mind going online to see your list. Now there’s even a iphone app available. You can prioritize things, if your list is long! It’s also free.
Writing down short and long term goals are sorta like having lists. I looked back at my long term goals from the beginning of the year and completely blew it! Oh well, lots of unexpected things happened. I used to be better with my monthly goals, but I stopped writing those down in February. So I plan to start that up again. Stay turn!
