    Sticky Note stacking what a great idea. As another A.D.D creative type I love the idea of limiting my view to one thing at a time. I did have to drag the idea beyond the 90’s by downloading a sticky notes app that syncs on my ipad and MacBook but it still lets me stack them in order on my screen. Absolute gold dripping from the ceiling (cue music) .
