I'm a list maker. I make lists all the time...on the back of envelopes, on the "memo" function on my phone, sticky notes all over the place, etc. I find that the more times I write it down, the more likely I'll remember it. Sometimes I even call my home phone to leave myself voice messages. The only kink in that plan is I have to find the list, and actually read it, or actually call my voicemail to pick up messages.
Is voice mail becoming a thing of the past? I used to call mine constantly. Now, I am lucky to check it once a week, and even when I do, I will save the message and promptly forget it's there. Email is better, because at least it's already written down. I just have to remember to go through old emails to check on things I need to do. I just came across what might be the next best thing...
I found an interesting website that will let you send emails in the future! Use it to remind yourself to do something that you’ll more than likely forget, keep your future self on the straight and narrow, even wish your friends happy birthday... I could email myself to remind me to make a hair or nail appt., buy birthday gifts, get something at the grocery store, etc. I haven't actually used it yet, but here's the website in case you want to check it out.
It's called Time Machiner. Add this to my list of things to do...email myself.
