Old School Tools that Work


I’m old school. Write your tasks to remember them or file them to forget. In this day of technological advances, we have become so reliant on apps and alarms to remind us of what to do, what meeting to go to, and what appointment we have in the next hour. At the same time, if you’re anything like me, you click ok or swipe across and before you know it, you forget what the alarm was for. So I decided to go back to the tried-and-true Post-it® and lists.

When I write the task, I remember it and can check it off. There’s a sense of accomplishment and accountability even if it’s just between the paper and me. When I file it on my iPhone, I forget it once I swipe across. I simply use the iPhone as a reminder to what I’ll be checking off later that day.
