I usually prefer to leave text message for people. I avoid calling at all because I see it very time consuming. I do not leave a not as well because I think that maybe he or she would not see it.

I never leave notes for anybody. I send text messages for my peers. I think, maintaining paper notes are quite hard. Rather we can use apps for writing those notes and set the priority features along with those notes. That would be very convenient and easy to fostering any notes.

How do you normally leave messages for people? Do you send text messages or do you leave notes?
I rarely leave messages for people, especially for my colleagues. In some cases when I need to, I prefer sending text messages to leaving notes.

Well actually I don't leave a message or a note for anyone. If I want to remind someone about specific thing I just give him a call.
