Quick Tips: Stop Trying to Remember

Your memory isn’t as good as you think it is. Add five years to your life and it’ll be even worse. It’s time to stop relying on your memory and to write everything down. No, not in little yellow stickies that litter walls, mirrors, monitors, or your car’s dashboard, but in ONE notebook or ONE phone app.

I carry a notebook in my back pocket for times I don’t want to bust out my phone or computer. I use one iPhone app that syncs with my computer to keep track of every last thing I need to do.

Stop trying to remember things, you’ve failed. Or maybe you’ve just forgotten you’ve failed.
