The #Postitwars Are the Best Use for Sticky Notes You'll See This Year
My co-worker borrowed my Post-it pad yesterday. When she asked, I nodded, dimly aware that I even had the sticky notes on my desk. I rarely use them. All my notes these days are digital; I'm lucky if I can find a pen.
But, I digress. I have little use for paper these days, and my guess is that you don't either—but you've probably got a sticky note pad sitting on your desk right now. You can continue to stare at them or debate starting a Post-it War.
Yes, a Post-it War. As of last week it’s a real thing that started on one very lucky block in New York City. Four companies started decorating their street-facing windows with messages and decorations made out of—wait for it—sticky notes.
As someone who’s certainly had those days when I’d rather do anything but work, I’m jealous that I didn’t think of this genius idea: so simple, yet so, so entertaining. However, rather than beating myself up up, I’m instead going to enjoy the war so far.
