My memory sucks. I have notes everywhere. I have almost used up all of the memory in my palm pilot. Post-its rock. Sometimes I even resort to recording lectures or my own thoughts. Some of my fellow CRSers (Can’t Remember Shit, haha) use the same methods to compensate.
Then there’s those like my great-uncle. They refuse to write down ANYTHING! I told him how to get on the internet about 50 times. He still won’t remember, and he still won’t copy the directions I give him! I know several other people like him. They miss appointments and events because they won’t use calendars. They go to grocery stores and forget key items, because they won’t make shopping lists. On and on.
