    I get others to remind me of things. Carelessness is really my middle name.

    Getting Things Done - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I highly recommend it for any other shitty organizers out there. It is a lifesaver and IMO very P-friendly. I don't do the million folders thing, though. I've modified the concept to suit my lifestyle. I can't do paper. Basically I just offload everything organization-wise to my gmail inbox so I don't have to think about it and try to keep track of it all in my feeble brain or on countless lists and papers. Tried that - failed, many times.

    I've got my Google calendar set up to send reminders to my inbox, where they are tagged in purple. I keep them as new until I do them. Now I only forget to do things if I forget to enter them in my calendar (which, sadly, happens more than I'd like to admit). I've set up as many bills online as I can, and I keep track of them with GCalendar as well.

    Now, if I could only get control over the massive amounts of paper shit that piles up everywhere around here... too bad I can't hire someone to intercept and electronify my paper mail.

    I stack up my stuff in piles... all over my desk. One pile/stack per subject... sometimes I stack two things together. Actually why am I repeating myself... see here:

    Planners, organizers I've never kept up with beyond the first month... I'm trying out remember the milk at the moment. It seems to be working better since it doesn't take much work to use. But it's too early to tell.

    I don't know? I guess I just tend to remember stuff. I don't really need to write things down. I know that doesn't really help though.

    At work..I wasn't one to use much paper -- I'd just print out the documents that were absolutely necessary and make notes on those. Use scratch paper otherwise. Of the documents I printed out, I'd put them in file folders in drawers, by Project. But as far as job duties and tasks and things I needed to follow up on, I kept most everything in my head. This differed from my ISFJ coworker, who was ultra-organized in an externally visible way - with everything neatly binded, multiple colored pens, each color of which held some special meaning for her when she took notes or wrote down little reminders for herself to follow up on, and very thorough in documenting things on paper. My documentation was all in my head or in chicken scratch on random pieces of paper.

    As far as activities go, I tend to not like to be super busy anyway, so I sort of manage my life so as to keep things at a more low-key level, so that I won't overextend myself. I'll even purposely 'schedule' and block off days where I don't have anything going on. That alone makes it pretty easy for me to remember things.

    I do write things on a calendar, but that isn't exactly 'necessary' -- I half do it just because I like to SEE that I actually have a life. Ha.

    Haha, this made me think about how I work a bit. I have to write important stuff down because I am involved in just way too much shit at once to mentally keep track of it--in fact I think as more of a mental defense mechanism I intentionally *don't* commit a lot of work details to memory, relying instead on information documented in emails, my notebook and our ticketing system.

    For time management and following up, I either rely on my calendar--with my cellphone's ability to sync its calendar with the MS Exchange server--or more importantly, other people especially Project Managers who hassle me all the time. As the company's grown bigger and bigger we've moved more to that--folks specializing in certain things and less "one man army" jack-of-all-trades type of stuff. I'm not sure I like it this way though. But with the level of work involved, it's what I have to do.

    How do I manage to be organized and get things done? 3 things:

    1) Strattera
    2) Caffeine
    3) Marijuana

    No day planner, no to do lists, no time management, just good old fashioned, 20th century exertion of chemical control over one's body. That last one only helps eliminate the mundanity of everyday BS/tasks and makes them amusing, it has no pragmatic use otherwise. You'd be surprised how fun multi-tasking is..... when on WEED

    I have to wait for inspiration.

    Inspiration, meaning I get FED UP with my disorganization - that I pour myself into 18 hours of non-stop cleaning/organizing/trashing/throwing/burning/tearing/sorting/etcing.

    It happens.

    I'm good with making systems. I'm not so great at keeping them - but I have done it, AM WORKING ON IT!

    I have memory holes in my brain, all important things go into it and never get seen again, which is why I keep everything backed up on my pc calender with alarms to remind me, and a white board and 2 corkboards in different rooms, just incase the alarm still didn't motivate me lol.

    When it works, it works great, but when I forget to put the stuff on the boards and on the pc, which happens after I burn out, then it all falls to pieces.

    I would like to learn a way to manage my finances better though, a way to budget out a plan that would include some viable saving method that I could stick to without feeling the burn.

    Money and me are mortal enemies, a love hate thing, I love it and it hates me.
