Writing on a whiteboard is fun. Well, at least, initially. I once brought up a pending list of things I discovered particularly as "pending" so that I can just write them on the board. Green, red, blue, black- nice colours. But once you write it, it sits there until you actually do it. I feel really guilty wiping off something which I haven't done. The whiteboard makes you feel that way, doesn't it?
Somehow, finally wiping off an ever-pending item on the whiteboard gives me immense satisfaction. I feel like getting the job done just so that I can wipe it clean off the board. Well, looks like I love writing on the board, and I also love wiping what I wrote off the board. Well. I should give it due credit- it definitely makes me work.
I am not really particular about buying, collecting, or using stationery. But, these definitely do give a sense of comfort, an order among chaotic schedules, and something that can slightly push me towards sticking to the plan.
It's not the whiteboard for all of us, I guess. For some, it is diaries. For some others, small notepads. I have seen magnets, and sticky notes, and one sided papers. But, they all serve the same purpose. They push us to get the job done so that we can wipe/strike/tear it away from the list of to-do things. How about you?
