When to go low-tech at work

📝 Today’s tip: Turn your colleagues into notecards.

Things like to-do lists, notes, and calendars are usually best when they’re digital, highly accessible, and shareable. For people, though, try using a more analog approach.

Get a set of notecards for your workspace, each with the name of a single person at the top: your boss, your colleagues, and all the other important people in your professional sphere. Underneath, write down projects you want to begin or follow up on, questions you want to ask, anything you want to talk about during your next conversation.

As a thought occurs to you during the day, get it on a notecard. They’ll become a useful tool, as well as a snapshot of everything that matters to you right now, through the prism of what matters most to any career: other people.
