I'm not what you would call an organized person. At all. I'm basically the opposite. I lose everything. I can't keep anything straight. I forget to return phone calls, emails, text messages. You name it. I try to remember important events, but sometimes I forget those too.
I didn't used to be this bad. But recently I feel like I'm moving from being a lovable ding dong to just plain flakey. And no one likes a flake.
I've tried several different things to keep organized. All have failed. Not to blame shift here, but Jimmy is just as bad as I am. So you put the two of us together and we are a mess.
It's like when I have a missed phone call, I usually see it at an inconvenient time. And I think, " Oh I'll call them back later". Then I forget and never call them back. Bad. I'm old fashioned in that I think it's rude to be on your phone all the time. Sorry if you are like that, but I don't like it. I don't answer my phone when I'm with a group of people. Like they want to hear my conversation. Or I'm not responding to my emails while hanging out with someone. I like give the people I'm with my full attention. They deserve it after all.
So, my time to correspond with people is somewhat limited. But I know that is a crappy excuse. I have a phone that can keep track of all sorts of things for me. But if I put an event in there I forget to check it.
My question is this. All those people out there who are organized, and who don't forget everything. How do you do it? What method works best for you? I really want to get it together. I feel like my forgetfulness sometimes hurts peoples feelings, and I really don't
Waiting for James to arrive!
