Do not write your password down and leave it near your computer

Writing your password on a 'sticky-note' and sticking it on your monitor makes it very easy for people who regularly steal passwords to obtain yours.  Hiding it under your keyboard or mouse pad is not much better, as these are common hiding places for passwords.  However if you must write something down, jot down a hint or clue that will help jog your memory or store the written password in a secure, locked place.
