Yes.  Love it.  Highlight the items I've done as I go.  There is something powerful about that...and writing down the items that need to get done by hand.  Somehow, they stick in my brain a bit better when I handwrite them.

Well, I sort of have a hodge-podge of methods. If I'm getting swamped, I start making lists, but usually on big post-it notes that I stick somewhere. Other things I need to remember I put on my calendar. The other day I read something on here about the 5-second rule which is amazingly true, and I have another list for my thoughts that I have to write down so I don't forget them. There is definitely room in my process to get better organized.
