Question of the Day:

How do you make yourself remember important things?

    Very funny, Adam. Apparently I don’t, so I’m going to try the “leave the watch” trick. We’ll see if it works.

    I put things on my google calendar, but I am pretty good about just remembering events. I do suffer from destinesia pretty bad, though.

    I have about a million reminders every day pop-up on my Outlook calendar. Or I have sticky notes everywhere at home. And Tim told me on the 4th that I told him about ten things to remember to not forget…And I forgot them all! So, I guess I rely on my husband, too. 🙂

    Lists, lists, and more lists. I write a lot of lists. For work I use lists and Outlook reminders.

    What is the “leave the watch” trick?
    I write things down. I have a little notebook I carry around with me specifically for making notes. I know in the modern world I’m supposed to use a palm pilot or something, but I just find paper more convenient.

    I am a big fan of leaving a sticky note on my phone. It’s actually pretty silly in retrospect because I have a ‘notes’ feature on my phone AND my outlook calendar is synched to it. 🙂 However, you can’t miss a big, yellow note on the screen.

    Google Calendar is good for coordinating schedules, and I use alerts on my phone to cue events. Getting events INTO my phone, well that usually employs the use of many, many sticky notes.

    i thrive on chaos in my personal life apparently. when i was planning a local music festival, i would alternate between extreme organization and postit overload.
    i’d have to sit down weekly with my stack of postits and transfer all the things that hadn’t been done into one big list, then immediately i’d have to start putting postits on that list, and the whole thing rotated with all items from any one list never being completed. it was a job for 3+ people. I resigned as “festy planner” yesterday, so the position is open. lots of work for free, sounds fun right?
    i’m pretty much always a postit junkie tho. outlook and google are good back ups, but nothing says “remember this and do it” like a little yellow square.
