HAWMC -Day 22 Things We Forget


The Things We Forget.
Visit http://thingsweforget.blogspot.com/ and make your own version of a short memo reminder. Where would you post it?

There are so many things I really do forget that post it notes truly are a Godsend for me. They are on my books, on my fridges, on the mirror on the bathroom, They are on the big family calender and inside my date book. Most of them are all about specific things ... wake up at 7 am Thursday, remember your keys, take some money with you. The one on this page is what I really need to remember. I tend to worry too much, and over think things and then procrastinate until I am in real trouble.

How I look at sticky notes changed once I saw a video by comedian John Kawie who is also a stroke survivor. I really got a lot out of his video preview and his monthly short articles in the Stroke Connection Magazine, the publication of the American Stroke Association. I bought a copy of his DVD.

I have shared the preview below. I hope you watch the whole thing but please take a look at the bit starting at 3:20 minutes in for his comedy bit-- "post-its are my life". So funny and so true for many of us survivors of stroke and brain injury.






I used http://wigflip.com/superstickies/ to make the graphic. Fun!!

I found that superstickies site too! LOVE IT. I live from list to sticky note to list. It's how our family keeps on track - we've trained our children to put it on a sticky note if they want us to remember something they need us to do.

Thank you so much for your lovely, encouraging comment on my blog yesterday.

John's Post-It note take on a trenchcoat flasher was hilarious. I use lots of stickies since my stroke.

Post-It Notes are a real God-send. Whoever invented them was a genius! I also like the 'Stickies' function on my MAC laptop, although I think I put too many into its memory and it started to act up. I had to find a different way to store them. lol

If you have Windows 7 you can get the sticky post gadget for your desktop. I use this program all the time.

I loved the video. Attitude is everything.
