I missed my deadline yesterday for #BlogJune! Oh no!
It’s such a horrible feeling when I realise I’ve missed a due date or a meeting or forgotten to do something! I get a rush of adrenaline and it takes ages to quell the panic.
Although I’m finding that the older and wiser I get, the easier it is getting to forgive myself. Perhaps because the more times I muck up and nothing goes wrong I realise the consequences aren’t as astronomically horrible as I imagined they would be… not entirely sure if this is a good thing though.
My problem at the moment is that I have too many calendars. I used to have the amazing Sunrise App to connect all of my life together, but since it got bought out by a monolithic tech company (as all amazing tech is wont to do), I’m in a constant state of insecurity about whether I’ve checked all my many pockets of information.
I use Google Calendar which syncs fine to Job #1, but Job #2 uses Outlook Web App which won’t sync to anything except other mail devices. My main organisational tool is actually just a Google Doc, it opens on all my devices and I can add notes to it everywhere. For this same reason, I like Google Keep to hold meeting notes as it gets a date stamp.
I’d love to know… what do you use to meet your deadlines?
