The 10 Post-it Note Trick

A Whiteboard Sticky Notes used in a Ideation Workshop by Innovolo

Take 10 post-it notes, write the word “Invoice” on them and stick them throughout your office.  You can have a million ideas for new products, but they aren’t worth the paper they’re written on (or the head they’re stored in) until you’ve shipped them and actually got paid for them.

5 tips to get paid more: –

  1. Never stop investing in improving your skill set and understanding your client’s needs
  2. Understand that in 24 months from now, you should not be getting paid what you are today; if you improve your skill set it will be easier for you to get paid more.
  3. Learn quickly from all mistakes and do not repeat them
  4. Consistently deliver quality products on-time or over-deliver on your service
  5. Get positive reviews/recommendations and referrals
The more value you GIVE, the more you are eligible to receive!

The post it note trick is the perfect problem solution for lazy innovators. It can push them to get things done.

The five tips you have shared should be the backbone of any physical product development. They are more than valuable.

I will be using the post it note trick to improve my idea generation. I hope it works out!

What a genius way to create ideas! I will be using post note myself too.

This tip is really quite useful. It will really help people to create ideas that are totally worth it

I love using post-it notes. Whenever I need something to do or something to fix or solve, writing in post-it notes get me to create ideas and find problem solutions.

This is the trick I use every time I create ideas or thought of it for anything. For one it helps me have a starting point and most of all it helps me not forget. It is an old school trick but it always will work. Pretty easy to do too.
