Do you send yourself reminders?

In today’s fast-paced world, managing a myriad of tasks, appointments, and responsibilities can be challenging. Sending yourself reminders is a crucial component of an effective communication system that ensures nothing falls through the cracks.

Guidelines:

  • Address yourself – Address “To Myself” with a message or action tasks you must complete.
  • Tag – Tag the people you must report to on this task and respond to them once it is done.

 

Example:

To Myself, 
As per my conversation with Steffi S and Zoey F
  1. Can you get a quote for two MacBook Pros with a 2TB hard drive and 64 GB RAM?
  2. Can you get a quote for both devices to be covered by third-party and accidental damage insurance for five years?
  3. Can you get Ralph P. from accounts to approve the purchase?
  4. Can you get Steffi to approve the final purchase order before processing?
