So, I started using a planner yesterday, yes one of those black leather zipper man-purse things. The past year or so at work I’ve gotten really forgetful and find myself apologizing for not getting things done for people yet. This is mostly due to having 45 things to remember at all times. My monitor was a post-it note dumpster. I had three calendars with notes all over them, and text files all over the place named “todo.txt” “remember.txt”.

In the past I’ve tried several Palm models, but they don’t seem quick enough to jot things down with. So I’m trying my hand at an old school paper based organizer. I’m on day two and am knocking things out like crazy. So far so good. We’ll see how it goes.
