DIY Goal List

Being organized is hard. My office alone requires the organization of papers, supplies, cords, bills, envelopes, more cords, and a bunch of stuff that requires brain power in order to categorize it. And that's just one room in my apartment! So when I came across this picture on PopSugar (sorry, the original link doesn't work), I decided to make my OWN template to share with you, should you choose to do the same!

The original post must have used 2"x2" Post-Its, since they managed to get three across on an 8 1/2"x11" piece of paper, but since I had 3"x3" Post-Its, I made this template with two on the bottom and two on top, making it four goals per... whatever you like. My example below is per week.

And the best part? You don't have to use Post-Its - you could slip it in a plastic page protector, bust out your dry erase markers, and reuse it over and over again! I find keeping it on the fridge is helpful, since I frequent it enough during the day...

So if you consider yourself organizationally-challenged, I recommend you download the template, print it out, and see how it does you for the week. Sometimes that visual reminder goes a long way. And the best part? Ripping off that Post-It or wiping off that chore - it's very satisfying!

TOTAL COSTS: Depends on method
Template I made is free (though you're welcome to make one of your own)
$4.50 for 100 Sheets of Post-Its at Staples
$1.50 for dry erase marker at Staples

TOTAL AMOUNT OF TIME: How long does it take for you to print a piece of paper?

EASY-PEASY SCALE (1 super easy - 5 very difficult): 1 out of 5
The hard work is done - the template has been made. All you have to do is fill in the blanks. Ok, maybe the hardest part is actually getting all of your goals done...
