I know that’s a weird title but the truth of it just occurred to me a few seconds ago! I have come to the realization that productivity tools – calenders, to-do lists, alarms, reminders, etc. ARE helpful for me, just like they have been proven to be for many people. They’re not just for ‘other’ people, they’re for me too. I have JUST NOW come to that realization!! WOW!! I know that sounds incredibly arrogant on some level, and it is. But it’s the truth. I have never felt the need for them, I’ve used them but not really, I own them, I write stuff in them, I claim to need them, but I don’t truly feel like I do, and I don’t really use them. I think that needs to change.
Let me give you a little background on how this ‘epiphany’ just ‘happened’.
