I like keeping track of each area of my life in a separate calendar, color-coded by purpose. At a glance I know if I am spending the day on my own activities, working for my children or working for another. With my technology, it is easy to separate my calendar into many subcategories in order to keep everything organized and separate but combined at the same time. My tablet has my shopping lists broken down by store type and purpose. I use my tablet to keep track of plan for birthday parties, school events, and bus schedules. When my children are ill, I set alarms on my tablet to remind me when to take temperatures and when to give out medication.
It is amazing how organized technology allows me to be. When I promise someone I will do something, I put it in the calendar while I am talking about it so I can be sure to do the appropriate prep and follow through. With my technology, I am able to keep large numbers of phone numbers organize, up to date and current. I can keep all the resources I need for blogging, vision boarding or mind mapping in my hand, on my technology. I am simply amazed at how organized I can be with technology.
In conclusion, it is terrific to love technology because it is an organizational marvel. So the question for you this terrific day is what do you love to use technology to keep organized?///
