|How often do you try to remember to complete specific tasks by remembering in your head? |
I know that I used to do it all the time. Another thing I used to do all the time is get mad at myself when weeks later I would remember that the task that I filed away in my head, still hadn't been completed.
"Damn it, I have to do a better job remembering this stuff."
No, you have to get better about writing it down. It's insane for us to put the expectation on ourselves that we're going to remember every little thing.
Think about how much information we have flood our brain on a daily basis. It's impossible.
If you want to instantly decrease the amount of daily stress in your life AND become more efficient with your day-to-day, then start writing things down.
