You Know What Makes Me Happy? Colour Coding!
I am a colour coding addict. I am tempted to colour in boxes on my spreadsheets at work that don't even have content in them, just because it's so flipping pretty. As a compulsive organizer, I have an unending love for spreadsheets, flowcharts and graphs. Mind Maps make me smile and Venn diagrams make me happier than ice cream does.
The folders in my desk are organized by colour. Once, when I was a temp, I re-filed & re-labelled an entire 10-filing-cabinet huge client system so that clients were organized into groups of colours by location. Just because it annoyed me that every file colour was random.
I drool over highlighters and multi-coloured post-it's. I can't help it! Any to-do list seems possible when written in silver pen on dark teal post-it. Am I right?
I won't even get into the 40 apps on my phone which organize my life.
First week of March seems like an awesome time to head to the office supply store and grab a few new treats for my desk. I cleaned my desk this week and sorted through most of my unwanted papers so I am all fresh and ready for a slew of colour coded notepads!
