    Default Memorization and Time Managment are Stressful

    Memorizing and tracking the many tasks I have to accomplish every week is a big source of stress in my life.

    Which function is responsible for memorization? Is it Si?

    Do any of you find this sort of memorization and time managment stressful?

    What can I do to relieve this stress?

    As an INXP it doesn't come with this function set either.

    Get yourself a system, and use it. It's almost a relief. i use a rock solid system of "to-do"s using the calendaring and project management in lotus notes which we use at work. So every email piece of works gets sent to a new to-do. I then flag it for urgency and just update the narrative as stuff moves.

    That way I can print out a list of "everything" when I need to. The time management I have to do to the nearest 6 minutes.. so it's just about sticking to it.

    Thank you both.

    I'm afraid that a PDA would add another level of complexity to my life. If I had one then I would worry about it breaking, whether or not the batteries are charged, etc. Well you get the idea.

    I've tried utilizing to-do lists. The problem is I end up with list upon list. Nested lists if you will. And, invariably I grow disgusted and aggravated with the mess I've created and toss the whole works in the bin.

    My apologies, I should have mentioned that I am seeking more of a psychological solution. A holistic approach. I want to attack the root of this problem, which is why I'd like to know which function or lack thereof is the source of my distress.

    I forgot to add that part of what is causing this stress is the fact that I can't stop thinking about all that I have to do. The tasks keep cycling through my thoughts, which is very annoying. For whatever reason I am unable to "pause" this part of my brain ...

    Aha! Well you need to tell yourself you can deal with it, I'd say.

    I probably do need a (pardon the expression) good kick in the ass to jolt me out of this. That part I am working on. Oddly enough I can be strong willed with sufficient motivation. And I must tell you that my motivation is increasing by the day.

    I use my cell phone! it has a planner thing where i can put in tasks/events and then i tell it when i want it to go off. I have the same problem...especially in school, when I'm interested in something I workworkwork, but if there is no end in sight (within the next 3 days) or i'm not interested i do need a good ass kicking now and then..

    I like your picture too, I love beagles

    I recommend either a PDA like my fruity friend here suggests, or try an idea introduced by another of my favorite endorsers of fruit. The Flintstones.

    Figure either a PDA or a stone and chisel.



    Or do like I do. Avoid assignment and shirk what responsibilities you do acquire.

    Good idea but a cell phone presents the same problem as a PDA. More complexity.
