When Chris Illuminati left his job to become a stay-at-home dad, his wife was worried that he might forget one of the many duties that comes with staying home and caring for wee ones. She suggested he write down a list of his daily responsibilities, but instead of going the more traditional route, he decided to go the Post-It note route.
“As a joke (because I’ve never taken anything in life seriously), I wrote down even the simplest of tasks and pinned it to my bulletin board. I forgot all about the note. I also forgot to change the baby,” he wrote on his blog.
7 years, another kid, and 60,000 followers later, he’s still writing notes to himself (and amusing his wife, presumably, which is the key to a healthy marriage!) with daily pearls of wisdom disguised as reminders.
