I am forgetful. Very forgetful. I have tried about every different way of remembering to do things that there is. But still I find, nothing beats writing it down. Making a list.
One of my biggest annoyances is when I think of something I need to do, remember, or worse.. a really good idea and I can't write it down. Because 99.9% of the time... that thought is lost. This happens a lot when I'm driving. I can do some good thinking then, provided my passengers are happily entertained with a movie (don't judge). So someone told me what they do in situations like this... and I instantly wanted to yell, "why didn't i think of that?! duh!!" and because information like this is not earth shattering , but may be life altering... I'm Passing IT On!
Cell phone. Use it.
There are plenty of recording apps and some that are specifically for lists. I have been using Evernote on my android phone. It is great in that i can record a message (a yellow post-it, if you will) and it is stored right on my home screen. It's been working really well ...when I remember to check the note! LOL..
Just a little tidbit for ya.. try it out and take a load off your mind!
.... now I just need something to help with those great lists I make in the shower. dry erase marker!?
