Recently I have found myself in forgetting much things. It could be something unimportant, or something really important eventually it does not matter, only matters the fact that it is forgotten.

First of all I understood, that I do not need to panic and go to doctor in trying to get some assist. I started searching for reason of why is it happening as well as looking for tools which could help me to avoid this.

Finally I found out that first reason is my mail, it was overcrowded with letters and that's why when I entered the mail I felt like "o my god, how much letters I have already seen and what should I do with them, why are there so much?". The solution for that was to switch to the inbox service and set up some filters, then I started planning my deals and letters. I made some pretty subscriptions to some teach services like Sidebar, HTML5 Weekly, JavaScript Weekly and so on. First it helped me to learn new stuff and second it helped me to use the tool efficiently. For all unnecessary stuff I establishing filters for everything else I am trying to read right now, or to plan only interesting things for tomorrow morning, or if it is heavy stuff for weekends (thanks to inbox there are such possibilities).

Second I am trying to solve the problem right now, because most often it takes less time than I think of it. But if I cannot, like for example some trainings will be on Saturday I add reminder to my iPhone with reminding me of this event in advance (2 reminders for 1 event, in iPhone it is still 1 remind item) and thus I will not forget to attend this meeting.

To sum up

Simple 4 steps to do not forget anything.

  1. Find and understand what disturbs you from remembering.
  2. Solve it with tools and use these tools effectively.
  3. Try to solve problem at once, most often it takes much less time.
  4. Use your phone to remind you about some events (after all it is designed not only for games and facebook)
