I’m ashamed of myself, though I hold on pig-headedly to the excuse of having too many things/thoughts happening and swarming in my head at the same time; even during my sleep.
It is a serious problem, to tell you the truth. Grocery items just pop in my head, or an idea for a book materializes out of thin air and wouldn’t let go until I jotted it down. There are also appointments to remember, blogs to schedule, interviews to post…the list goes on.
So what are my glorified solutions?
Well, here they are (they work nicely, by the way):
Just a small one in my handbag, I can pull it out any minute and jot down a word, a sentence or a date with minimum explanation. Hey, I have a lousy memory, but with a small hint, it all comes back.
If you’re an author, make it a habit to keep a notebook by your bed. Most of the greatest ideas come to an author when about to sleep or upon waking up. Write them down, and if they sound silly later on, delete them if you like.
- Recorder: Record when lazy to write. Late at night, I hate to wake my husband by switching on the light to write down an idea. I whisper it into the recorder, and its there for safe keeping.
- Note: There’s a “Note” option under “Applications”, I jot grocery items, measurements of objects I need to buy for the house. It’s really handy, since my cell is with me wherever I go.
- To-Do option: Mine has an alarm associated with it, use it as a reminder.
To tell you the truth, I still haven’t figured a solution for remembering, midsentence, what I wanted to say.
