    As in keeping track of times, appointments, events, schedules, etc.

    Do you use your phone? Wall calendar? Planner notebook? Mental memory? Or something else?


    Also, how organized are you?

    My mind does it for me. Subconsciously I am always totally on it. Sometimes I hate how organised I am, I can never use the excuse that I forgot because everyone who knows me knows that it's a lie ! ;)

    You should get a whiteboard. You can draw on them and make collages with magnets. They're pretty nifty. I love magnets.

    I use visual aids: Place an empty prescription bottle next to my computer (when it's time for a refill), and the phone and electric bills are placed inside the latest book I am reading (I am forever reading a book to help me deal with my chronic insomnia). :)

    I use a planer notebook for school related things, email inbox for work, phone for friend's birthdays and post-it notes or magnetic board for other appointments (doctor, dentist, hairdresser, the date to return the books to the library, etc.).
    The rest I keep in my head.

    Some of my life is very organized. Some not so much. Now that I drive Dad wherever he needs to go I have a calendar on my door that lists all his appointments.

    For myself I put post it notes on the door so that I have to see it before I go out. I keep a small notebook (3X5) that I take with me for grocery lists or other errands.

    I don't remember as much as I used to, so I do need visual reminders.

    Likewise. But I'm trying to improve myself. Which is why I made this thread.

    that's a good idea. I've tried writing my agenda and to-do list on a sheet of paper and taping it to the wall. But it didn't seem to work consistently, and it looked tacky. And paper gets lost regardless.

    I have three dry erase boards and I use my phone.

    I have a dry erase board, but I'm more apt to put "drink white Russians and go bowling" than shit I really need to do.

    Phone for everyday lists, and notebook planner for more important things, mostly school related.
     
  18. I use outlook for my work cal and gmail for my personal cal because I like to keep these items seperate. For tasks I use trello

    creampie00 If you can't DODGE it....RAM it!

    Outlook for work stuff and memory for the rest. I have a friend who is very anal, she wakes up early and writes out her entire day in a notebook...including showering and brushing teeth. Things like that really dont need to be written down do they? I wonder if she writes on there...."make a list of things to do"

    I just remember it. Maybe write it down on a scrap of paper that I usually use anyway. I think the writing down helps me remember.

    I'm actually surprisingly organized. I don't really forget things.
