Things That Do Work for Me

    • archiving email as soon as I've replied or acted on it

      • enables me to forget about it

    • ticketing systems for software development

      • enables me to assign things to others, document, etc.

      • reluctant to use ticketing in non-work life, however

    • calendars and reminders

      • lots of reminders, the day before and then two hours before appointments seems to work well, since that gives me enough time to get anywhere in the Lower Mainland

      • invitations work, both for me to invite someone and someone inviting me

      • checking the calendar before responding to invitations enables me to say yes or no with confidence
