I have been using "electronic" organizers for about four years. In 2008, I got an iTouch from the Apple Store, and immediately switched to using it as my daily planner. Then three years ago, I finally got the iPhone. And my world was revolutionized with 3G. I swore I would never go back to being a commoner with phones and organizers.
Well, now I have changed my mind.
Yes. I have reverted back to a simple planner in which I write all my non-work appointments.
Well, I really don't want every part of my schedule accessible to those I work with. I have already shared my calendar in Outlook with them. So I really don't want to take it back. But I also don't want to write all the personal things that I need to remind myself to do in it, or the things I need to track for personal health.
Um... Okay. Like:
- Juice Fast - Remember to pick up beets!
- 6am Barry's Bootcamp
- 7:30am Blowout at Drybar
- 2pm Gyno Appointment
- Ovulation Day (Left-side Pain)
- Menstrual Cycle start
- 5:30pm Eyebrow waxing at Brow Bar
Really... Do people I work with want to know all of that?
Plus, I like writing things down, and then checking them off. You don't get to do that with your schedule on an iPhone.
I also find that keeping everything electronically makes it too easy for me skip out or "delete" something. When I write things down, I tend to actually follow the order.
