Continuing on the subject of reminding yourself to live with your brand, I found a post by William Arruda. His tip is to put your four most essential branding attributes in front of you as a reminder both for you and for your colleagues and friends.

I generally think using notes as reminders a excellent way of keeping focus on important things (branding or not). Just be aware so that your notes don’t become another must, it must feel right for you.
