Sometimes the best way to organise your thoughts and ideas is to stick little pieces of paper on a wall and move them around until everything is in the right order. But it can be messy or clumsy, and you might not always have the necessary materials to hand. Or a big enough area of wall to accommodate everything you want to make a note of.
If you like the concept but you'd prefer something a little more, well, up to date, then check out Pinup at www.pinup.com. It's a free online web-based version of that wall. Create virtual sticky notes, choose their size and colour, stick them on your wall, and write onto them. Moving notes around is easy, as is changing the size of a note if you end up writing too much.
You can keep your electronic wall private, or make it public, or invite specific people to see or contribute to it. And because it's web-based, it's instantly accessible from whichever computer you happen to be using at the time.
Pinup is free to use, so try it out. Even if you don't intend to use it for long-term project plans, perhaps use it next time you're planning something as simple as a shopping list or the set of tasks you need to do tomorrow.
