I’m forgetful and I know it. So I have to rely on several means of making my daily reminders. I use an e-Calendar on my desktop and key in all the things I have to do every hour and minute of the day. The e-Calendar will prompt me at the hour I am supposed to do the task. But this is not 100% reliable coz when the task is not done for the day and I had not set the reminder as a repeat task, I will overlook the task.
For very important things that I cannot afford to forget like registering my kid into a school, I stick Post It pads on my work desk and dressing table. I also write the reminder on my table calendar.
When I go shopping without the man, I snap photos of where I park my car… not only one photo of the parking lot number but also photos of the entrance, the pole and the shops upon entering the mall LOL! I know I will surely get lost in big malls with many Courts. For eg. Mid Valley Megamall – it has a few Courts like Centre Court (North), Centre Court (Escalator), North Court (Lift), North Court (Escalator), etc. etc. I don’t have a photographic memory now with so many other important things occupying the space in my brain. My memory is full and I don’t get enough sleep everyday (5 to 5.5 hours max, pathetic huh?), which only exhauts my brain power further.
My memory has failed me ever since Cass was born and she had sucked me dry of all my brain DHA for 3 frigging years. Now I have to pop Super Lutein, Izumio and fish oil to replenish my brain power 😀
Do these photos look familiar to you? I find that this is an excellent way of bringing me back to where I park my car in a huge shopping mall.
Do you do this too?
