"Ideas. Everyone has them. You’ve probably had several already today. But turning that killer idea into a concrete reality is the real challenge, especially in the fast-moving modern world. How many times has a great idea slipped through your fingers because you lack time or focus?
Post-it® Products has been aiding creativity for 35 years. From the smallest project to the largest organisation, our products help ideas come to life.
Let’s look at some of the ways we can help turn your thoughts into action:
Getting It Down
Ideas are often gone in an instant. It can be a race against time to get a thought out of your head and down on paper.
Writing an idea or goal down takes a higher level of concentration and clarity than thinking alone. Studies have shown you’re 42% more likely to follow through on an idea if you write it down.* So you need a fast, easy and reliable method.
Post-it® Notes are the perfect tool to quickly jot down an idea or message. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you can conveniently write anything from a memo to a manifesto. And because they’re stickable, you can keep them in plain sight at all times. Seeing is believing, after all.
One of the key factors in staying motivated is to share your idea with others. And what better way to collaborate than a brainstorming session? New perspectives can turn a good idea into a great one.
Post-it® Easel Pads allow multiple people to scribble down ideas on one big sheet. Instant feedback. Keeping a positive, collaborative environment means all voices can be heard and new solutions discovered.
Feeling fancy? Use the Agile/Scrum model. This divides an idea or project into a variety of modules to be tested. Assemble a small team of key project members that will meet on a regular basis. Now, using different Post-it® Notes for each, create headers for Functions/Features, To Do, In Process, To Verify and Done.
Each team member takes care of their own function or feature. As the idea or project develops they can move their Post-it® Notes through each stage until it reaches the done column. Simple!
visualization is a powerful motivational technique. It can be a fantastic aid in turning an idea into reality.
Illustrating your idea can help it solidify in your mind. Pictures, sketches and shapes are all useful tools when you want to stay in the zone.
Whether mapping out a new process using color-coding, or sketching out an idea using creative drawings, Post-it® Notes can help translate what’s in your brain.
There are times when we all need a bit of encouragement. Either from ourselves or others. It’s easy to get lost in the haze of small details and lose track of the bigger picture.
Post-it® Notes allows you to stick a motivational quote or friendly message almost anywhere. These simple words of inspiration serve as a useful reminder that our work has meaning and value.
Turning an idea into action is a fun, dynamic process. There will always be highs and lows, unexpected triumphs and unforeseen complications. It can be a challenge to stay motivated.
However, using some of these simple techniques, you have a great chance of keeping on track and seeing your idea through to completion. And it’s worth it. The beauty of seeing an idea move from your imagination into reality is proof that we can have a profound impact on the world around us.
Post-it® Products are the perfect tools to keep motivated; they’re the sharable, movable, stickable way to get your message into the world.
