Use A Whiteboard To Improve Your Day
Whiteboards are most often associated with educational settings or maybe boring sales seminars. It's amazing how few home offices have a whiteboard on display and in use.
Why would a small business person working from home need a whiteboard of any kind? That's easy to answer in one word - organization. A whiteboard gives you the single best way you can have to stay organized.
You all know how it goes. You get a phone call or have an idea. It gets scribbled on a piece of paper and left on your desk. It may or may not get actioned by you. Later in the day you have another idea which also gets scribbled on a scrap of paper and left on top of your other notes on the desk. Tasks, jobs, callbacks and customers get lost, missed and forgotten.
Now switch things around. If you had a whiteboard in your office the next idea or appointment you have gets put up there instead. No matter where you sit in your office you can see it. You're constantly reminded of it. You have to do something about it. One thing is certain you most certainly won't forget it.
Of course if you're going to to buy a whiteboard you'll need to get some accessories like whiteboard markers, a whiteboard duster and also some cleaner for the board itself. The expense involved is considerably less than you might imagine with some large whiteboards on sale in office suppliers for as little as $40.
Another alternative is to use whiteboard paint on a blank wall space in your office at home. This amazing paint converts any flat, dry surface into an instant whiteboard of any size you want. There's a certain childish freedom to being able to scribble on walls that many of us "grown ups" can appreciate.
So if you're tired of missing appointments and losing important notes then invest in a small whiteboard today. You'll be amazed at how much easier it will make your life.
