Remember or Retrieve
The technology tools we are using are changing what and how we remember. It still helps to remember a few key phone numbers. However, by carrying around your cellphone and using it to click twice to find and call person you want -- eliminates the need to remember and or completely eases the problems with retrieval. We can pay bills in this easy manner and maintain our checkbook. If you think of these as information tools as well as communication tools, then you could seek out solutions for the other tasks you have. You might take advantage of the calendar and events alert function in your cellphone or computer. I have prioritized these areas in my life and then have tackled them one by one. The real hurdle is the mechanism to invoke the tool and to load in the data - but the savings in remembering and retrieval are on-going.
