In my last post I suggested that a healthier perspective to feeling you’ve failed is to instead observe your patterns and tweak for better results. Changing and adapting to situations when new information becomes available, is in fact, being organised.
The same goes with forgetting things. Being organised is not about never forgetting anything ever again but being able to do something about it quickly when you do.
Case in point, I was rushing for a doctor’s appointment and forgot my Medicare card. In the span of 30 seconds I went from saying “Doh!” to “Ah! I have the number listed in Evernote.”
And how did I know to have that number listed else where? You got it! Because I’d forgotten before. Live and learn is the phrase, not live and beat yourself up!
What’s something you can do to help your future self?
