Back in October I featured the list boxes that are in some of the Quo Vadis weekly planners and discussed different ways to use them. My question today is, what should the icons be?
Currently the boxes are labeled with little icons indicating what types of lists or notes you should put in each box. It’s a nice way to give you a quick landing place for things you need to jot down quickly, and it organizes everything as you write it.
The icons are a little phone to indicate phone calls you need to make or notes from phone calls; an @ symbol for things you need to do at the computer or emails to send; a $ to indicate bills to pay or payments received; a notepad for notes, and a pencil to remind you of things to write.
I’m wondering if these icons are the best things to go in those spaces, or if some icons should be different. Or should we do away with the icons entirely and just use numbers, or an empty box so you can designate the spaces according to your needs?
What are your suggestions for the icons in the list boxes?
