Have you ever been either so engrossed in your work, you’ve forgotten to make a scheduled call or go to an appointment? Or maybe, you just plum forgot? I’ve realized that when I am writing especially that I become very absorbed and may lose track of time. I review my calendar in the morning and I see, for example, if I have any client call (or calls) scheduled. I then will set an alarm on my phone to go off a couple of minutes ahead of the appointment to make sure I don’t forget. I am not all for bells and whistles going off willy-nilly such as pop-ups alarms every time you receive an email, but I do like them when they serve a specific purpose. I am in charge and in control. I’ve set the alarm to help me. Why don’t you try it? See where you have been having a tendency to forget, even when it’s on the calendar. Then set an alarm or alert to bring your attention to it in a timely manner. Let’s Get Productive together!
