Sticky Note Clock Face – But Why?

The other day when I was in NYC covering the Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery event at Staples I decided to meander around the area once it was over.  I was glad I did this because I just so happened to come across the awesome Muji store on 8th Avenue.  I have always heard good things about the variety of cool office supplies they had so I figured I would stop in to see what I could pick up.  This was definitely an office supply geeks ultimate window shopping and browsing experience.  The isles were filled with all kinds of cool office supplies and unique stationery items.

One of the things I picked up was this small pad of clock shaped sticky notes.  As you can see above, the back of the package has some Japanese writing on it, however I have no idea what it says since I cant read Japanese.  Is there anyone out there that can translate the Sticky Note Clock package for us here today?

The intent with the sticky note clock face was clearly to be able to draw in a pair of hands to indicate a specific time, but at the moment I’m drawing a blank as to why I’d actually use these.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure there are plenty of ways one COULD use them.  I’m just not seeing a use for these at the moment, so maybe some of you have some ideas that you can share on how you would use some sticky note clock faces?  Have at it in the comments because I’m either stumped or just plain stupid, both are likely scenarios though.

    Umm…variant on the old-school “While You Were Out”? Mr. Bigshot called at X time, with the hands sketched in just in case you can’t read the noted time? Beats me…

    According to my husband, the back of the sticky note says:

    Usage Example:
    You can record both time and the schedule detail so that they can both be seen at a glance.
    clock on the left: Meeting with Mr./Ms. so-and-so, Clock on the right: top shaded area: conference,
    bottom shaded area: Out

    Not super enlightening…some people DO love a visual aid though :)

    Like the Post-It Note Wrist Watches, this could be a timely reminder to stick where you cannot avoid seeing it, such as on your monitor at work. The paper Wrist Watch is better than the old system of tying a string around your finger, with room on the band for the subject if you might forget that too. I like both.

    I would use them to place a time I need a stack of whatever done by.

    First of all, the comments preceding and following mine are are all viable.

    Like a blank sheet of paper, what do you want to use it for? Perhaps a better question might be, “If you (each of us) had this pad, how would you use it?

    For me, the following are some ideas:
     * a reminder to do something at a specific time
     * note the time I began something (add the finish time when I finish.
     * a reminder that time is fleeting and the only choice we have is how we use it…

    O.K., those are some of my thoughts, I look forward to seeing other ideas.

    I have a similar clock face on my cornel notepad I designed for myself
    I use it to take notes at meetings and shade in the time of the meeting just a nice visual reminder of the time
    I also use it when tracking my day different colors highlighted on the clock to represent the different appointments / meetings / calls I have to attend and take the notes on the other side and match a corresponding color swipe with the notes taken.

    I could see using these for putting on file folders pertaining to meetings etc as a nice visual during the day or if I didn’t have my own notepad with the clock to post on notes as to when they were taken or times I need to follow up on things

    That works…although I’m trying to figure out how I’d represent “Never” so nobody would bother me. :)

    I was thinking it was for Chronodex stuff, put the time you are going to do things on any piece of paper.

    As a teacher the first thing I thought that these could be used for is teaching time. Give each student a blank sticky note and have them draw hands for a specific time.
