I have a lot on my plate, and it is SO important to keep track of everything and keep a schedule because otherwise I won't make all my appointments or keep track of what I'm supposed to do. In order to do this I have a HUGE daytimer, complete with dividers and pockets for all that important stuff I just can't lose.
I use my weekly pages to track my appointments, school schedules, extracuricular activities and schedules, a list of things to finish by the end of the week, goals, my business activities and meetings, calls I need to make, errands to run, and things I need purchase, drop off, or pick up.
I also need to actually schedule time for myslef, and time for my blog and networking. Of course this often leads to multi-tasking, but that's just how life is now. I also keep note of when and how much I pay on bills, what expenses I have coming up, sales for things I need or for my business, to do lists for myself, my business, and my child, chores, and contact information. I have note pages full of blog ideas, half written blogs, book ideas, and craft ideas. I keep a pen and paper with me at all times.
In order to keep all my schedules seperate, I use different colour pen for different people (mine versus my daughters) and I highlight time blocks in my day with certain colours for certain activities. Times for work are one colour, time for myself is another, etc. I have also added spots to hold some of my coupons (I don't always know when something I need will be on sale!) and business cards, as well as customer appreciation cards for the places that I shop most. Seeing the colours tells me what mind set I should be in and which gears to use, then the details tell me exactly what I should be doing. I have also planned in some "oops" time to every day and extra at the end of the week, for all the things that just didn't get done when they should have. This is extra helpful when a child gets sick or I get snowed in.
Well there, in a nutshell, is how I do the things I do, and how I remember what I'm supposed to do. Now if only accomplishing it was as simple as tracking it all...
