QOTD 10 October

Question of the Day

QOTD 10 October

Postby Funky Fairy » Oct 10th, '15, 9:38 am

Ha!! My question to you yesterday (I had it all planned) was rather ironically.....

...Do you forget things easily and how do you make sure you don't forget things?

Then I forgot to post it!! :)

So, yes, I am forgetful.
I think it's because I have so much going on not because I'm scatty.
I have to write things down.
Lists are my friends.

Oh - that is so funny!

I am actually pretty good at remembering things. But, I am very faithful in writing down a lot... so, maybe the two go hand in hand?

But, seriously - you can mention to me that you like something and a few years later, I will still remember. It can actually be a curse sometimes. - LOL.

I agree Ashli and Lisa - I am a list person - that's the only way I can function.

But I do remember names - that's how I can function as a fundraiser. It's like a scene from The Devil Wears Prada - I lean in to my boss and tell them who is walking toward them and how they know them and when they last gave.

And I know so many music lyrics - I can remember anything set to music I guess. Do y'all do that too?

No I don't do the music thing but it sounds like a great way to remember!

I do lists too - and I as I have posted before, I have long term to-do lists that I just keep pulling forward

Iska,
I am terrible with names. It['s embarrassing.
And I don't remember song lyrics either.

Don't worry Lisa - I can't do math to save my life and my sense of direction is about 180 degree off always.

We all have strengths and weaknesses.

I used to be good at remembering just about everything... then I got old! lol I could remember everything in the frig & cupboards, everyone's names, you name it, it was in my brain. But now I can't remember what I went into the other room for most days. It's the pits getting old... :D

My memory used to be excellent, both long and short term. In recent years though, my short term hasn't been as sharp. I definitely use my gorgeous Cocoa Daisy Day Planner Pages to help me to remember and my iCal.

Great question Lisa! I read the post way back 5 days ago and made a mental note to respond later and then completely forgot till I see it on the board this morning. So guess what -- mental notes no longer work for this ole gal. Like Deb says it sucks to get older. I remember what I read more than what I have heard; I have been this way all my life. So for music I need to see the name of the artist and song to remember it better.

I am a list maker and I keep my list by my coffee station in my kitchen. I always know where it is then. HaHa!

I use an old fashioned BF file (bring forward file) too. It is a simple file folder with 12 mini folders inside for each month of the year. I throw 'to do' notes in each file as needed and go through these weekly. Works for me.
