I Tell ADHD People Where To Stick It!

(cc) My Toolkit for Reading by wenxinIf you haven't had a chance yet, you might want to head on over to my ADDaboy! blog and check out Post It! Stick It! Remember It! Thanks to a reader comment here on this blog, I decided to explore how useful Post-it notes are, both physical and virtual.

Sometimes ADHD has me so funnel visioned that I don't fully understand a comment somebody says to me. Ever experience that? So focused on one thing you misunderstand what you read or hear? In this case, reader Sy raved about Post-It notes. I don't use Post-It notes. I used to, but stopped years ago. I go into why over at ADDaboy!

So I responded to Sy's comment as if it was a good idea for other people. But as I thought about it, I realized I use a wide variety of Post-It-esque apps and have since 1994. They're just on my computers. Then I realized I actually do use Post-Its, but in their flag form! Where was my head? Where it usually is. Off in orbit around Pluto.

These two products are my absolute favorites:

Bright Color Arrow Flags

Post-it Flag Pen

What do you use around the house? Are you more of a virtual or physical Post-it note user?
