Put it in the calendar
I am not a really super organized person.

But, it's fair to say that I get things done.

I do quite a lot of tasks -- various tasks. My week easily gets filled up with appointments and commitments.

So, how do I get all of these done and not forget a single thing?

It's actually pretty simple.

It's not about having a super complex to-do list or a fancy app to remind you of things.

I just put the things I need to in my calendar.

Yes, you heard that right. Put it in the calendar. 

For every thing that I need to do every single day, I block certain times of the day when I need to do them.

This extends beyond work. This includes my personal tasks and other stuff I need to do outside of work.

That's really basically it.

Once I put it in the calendar, it automatically sends a signal to my brain that I need to do it.

You know, I really don't like it when people say they are busy. It seems like a lazy excuse. And, we all are busy. Who isn't?

I think those people just don't find time. And, finding time starts with putting it in the calendar.

Just do it. It's a really simple ritual. But, it makes things a whole lot better. Plus, it increases the chances of getting them done!
