This is the latest picture of the overhead cabinet in my office at MegaCorp. Each week for the last 52 weeks, I have been pulling down a marker to countdown the weeks. I thought I would share a quick picture now while there is a few still left.
Here’s what it looked like originally and at the last update I showed …
It’s amazing to see the progress. I typically pulled them down on Friday afternoons, but sometimes I’d forget on my way out for the weekend and catch them on Monday morning. There’s a small, but mighty satisfaction that comes with pulling each one down ~ especially with just THREE weeks to go at this point.
One time I tweeted these out to @3M who makes the Post-it® Tape Flags and they “liked” the idea. I thought it was a good extended use idea for the product (for retirement, vacations, last day of school, wedding, etc) – it’s a colorful little tool to countdown life’s moments. That said, what do I know about marketing anyway?
So – three weeks to go; Oh, and I have a one week vacation still coming up!
Happy Friday everyone!
