When I have several important things to get accomplished that day, I make a list of what I need so I don't forget anything. But ninety percent of the time I forget to bring my written list. I try to reassure myself that I will remember everything, after all I just wrote it so it was still fresh on my mind. I go over all the errands that I had to get done in my mind. I stop by the first errand closest to my house. Then as I was again on my way I suddenly couldn't remember what it was that was so important to get done. I kept feeling like there was something really important. Something that I had forgotten before to do that I then put at the top of my list. But no matter how hard I tried I could only think of my normal weekly errands. Over and over again as I did other errands, I would have this nagging feeling that there was something unusual that I had needed to do for a while but had kept forgetting to do. I had to do what I could remember and hope that the nagging feeling I was having was not about something important. After I was done I would go home and see what I had wrote on the list. Unfortunately when I saw what I had forgotten, again. I was shocked that I couldn't remember it because it was very important and time sensitive. So I grabbed my keys and went to go do it. I was going straight to do it and nothing else so I wouldn't forget again. Later I was thinking about how on Earth I couldn't think of something so important. And annoyed with myself that I constantly forgot to take the list I made so I wouldn't forget anything. Then it dawned on me that I never forget my phone so if I just sent myself a text of my list I would always have my list and I would not forget to do what was on my list.
