      Staying Organized: Best Tips to Keep Your Life Organized

      Staying Organized: Best Tips to Keep Your Life Organized

      Stay Focused

      When engaging in a busy lifestyle, it can be hard to stay focused and efficiently carry out tasks. Some chose pen and paper, and others may chose a small daily planner. 

      While these may work for you, a dry-erase board will allow you to write your ideas down in an organized fashion, clear your mind and focus on high priority tasks.  

      Stay Organized with Think Board

      A Microsoft study about the use of whiteboards revealed that people are able to brainstorm and organize more efficiently by arranging information visually!

      A great way to organize different topics and ideas is through color-coding. By using different colors for different subjects, it becomes much easier for you to focus on one task at a time.

      Another great technique is using check boxes. By checking off the tasks as you complete them and leaving them on the board, you motivate yourself to complete the ones that have yet to be finished.

      One thing that is overlooked when thinking about using your whiteboard is the size of your writing. Writing important tasks larger than minor ones spatially helps your brain internally organize in terms of urgency. A Think Board may be the best resource for this, since they come in all shapes and sizes, and can help with staying organized and idea generation.  

      You should also try to leave some extra room for external thoughts you may have about a certain subject. Seeing empty space on a whiteboard will encourage you to fill it with something. Many good ideas can stem from general keys of thought. Think Board is perfect place to let your ideas flow from your brain, to a physical surface where you can visualize them! 

      4 Best Productivity Tips for Organizing Your Work Life

      4 Best Productivity Tips for Organizing Your Work Life

      As exams slowly approach, many students are looking for ways to study, stay organized and stay focused. It's important to stay on task while increasing the productivity of work or school, but also important to have a little fun! 

      1. Writing Down Notes and Ideas 

      It's proven that writing down your notes and ideas help you not only remember the content better, but also allows you to have a new space to analyze and work through any problems you may have.

      Working through mathematical problems on whiteboards can help you see what is going on from step to step. Similarly, trying to list advantages and disadvantages of options you are presented with can help make a decision much easier.

      2. Make Lists 

      One of the best ways to increase your productivity is to make lists. Lists can help you internalize thoughts as well as remember them in an organized fashion. In the process of creating a list, you may find that often times you can remember what was on it without even looking.

      The cognitive science behind handwriting proves that writing trumps typing 100% of the time. Whether you're just trying to write down a list of groceries, or making a list of terms for your next exam, Think Board can help! 

      3. Map Out Your Thoughts 

      With Think Board, it's easy to map out all of your thoughts and organize them in a similar way to which your brain does. By writing all of your ideas and thoughts on a whiteboard, you are able to compartmentalize information much more efficiently and productively. Get creative, and organize like no other! 

      4. Go Explore: Don't Stay in One Room 

      Another perk to having a Think Board is being able to place it wherever you want. Whether you want one in your office, in your room, in the kitchen, or your desk, you can put a Think Board to any indoor, smooth surface!

      If you place your whiteboard somewhere where you see it every day, you are constantly being reminded of the content it contains, making it easier to remember. 

      Whether you're a college student looking for something to motivate you and boost your productivity, or a professional in the business world trying to stay organized and on top of your work, Think Board is the secret ingredient you've been looking for to achieve success.  

      Boston Globe: Think Board lets anyone write on the wall

      Boston Globe: Think Board lets anyone write on the wall

      For a class project three years ago, Hanson Grant needed to brainstorm ideas but discovered that paper was too small for his purposes, white boards were too bulky, and dry erase boards were too expensive. He began layering adhesives and dry erase coatings and ultimately developed Think Board, a clear, peel-and-stick vinyl film that turns any smooth surface into a dry erase board with no nails or drilling.

      Now a senior majoring in entrepreneurship at Babson College in Wellesley, the native of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., is a MassChallenge finalist.



      Q. How is Think Board most commonly used?

      A. Think Board is removable and reusable, so it can cover desks, walls, tables, doors, and refrigerators. We’re focusing on the Boston area for now, but we’ve already sold nearly 7,000 units in over 25 countries and passed $100,000 in revenue. It saves paper and money, which is especially important for schools and developing countries.

      Q. Why is writing on a Think Board better than traditional measures?

      A. It inspires on-demand creativity. Whether you’re in a dorm room, an office environment, or a hotel, you can slap it onto a surface for a creative working space wherever you need it. It’s also fun. Kids go wild when you tell them they can write on their desks or the wall.

      Q. Have you been surprised by the response?

      A. Absolutely. After I launched it out of my dorm room on Kickstarter [in July 2014], I expected support from my friends and family but 70 percent of the backers were people I never met before. Right then and there, I realized this is going somewhere and I need to bring it there.

      Q. Have you always had an entrepreneurial spirit?

      A. My whole life. I sold gum in middle school, and I sold water at the race track in my hometown. In high school, I had a T-shirt company that made custom batches for clubs and organizations.

      Q. What is your vision for Think Board?

      A. My goal is to cover every school desk in the country, while inspiring other students to enjoy their work and be creative. I’m 21, only a few years ahead of them, and maybe they’ll realize they can start their own thing, too. Anything is possible.

      Think Board comes in three sizes, and is also available as a grid and monthly calendar. For details, visit www.think-board.com.
