In this post on Timothy Ferriss’ blog titled “How To Never Forget Anything Again”, written by Leo Babauta of Zen Habits, the author talks about how our minds are not really very good at remembering a lot of things. His focus is on finding a system to help us retain this information by setting up a system. This system must cover different aspects of our lives and be easy enough to become a daily habit. After all, any tool we don’t like using we won’t. That’s just human nature.
Here are the applications the author recommends and their uses:
- Evernote-a great application for storing just about anything.
- Gmail-an excellent web-based email program.
- Gcal-the Google calendar tool.
- Anxiety-a handy to-do app.
- Jott-a nice little program to tie them all together.
I wanted to pass this along because I know all of us struggle keeping things straight and I’ve always found the Zen Habits blog to be a study in simplifying and adding meaning and quality to your life.
I hope you find his post to be as powerful as I did.
