Feeling overwhelmed by everything you need to do? Organisation weblog Apartment Therapy suggests that tasks that require immediate attention or long-term attention should be placed at eye level to "rise above the mess" of a cluttered workspace.
This could take the form of a paper planner, a wall calendar, desktop wallpaper, or a row of sticky notes as displayed in the above photo. It doesn't have to always be literally at eye level but you want these tasks in an area that won't become filtered out on a desk full of papers, books and miscellaneous clutter.
