Turn Your Colleagues Into Notecards

When the pandemic upended all my normal professional routines, I began experimenting with lots of different work-related organization and scheduling systems. I’ve incorporated task-based scheduling and John Zeratsky’s inbox approach into my week, but nothing’s been more valuable than an analog system that would’ve worked just as well 50 years ago. Or 100.

I’m convinced the key to healthy workplace relationships is notecards.

But not for to-do lists or calendars, which I’ve kept digital, accessible, and shareable. The notecards are for people.
