Love Technology - It is an Organizational Marvel

Years ago I kept a day planner. One of those fancy loose-leaf books with a calendar, to do list, planning sheets and a section for contacts. I liked my day planner. Each morning I would review my calendar and to do list to see what was going on that day. Each afternoon I would carefully move items from one day to another according to the day's events. At the end of each year, I travelled to the planning store and looked at the planning and calendar pages and carefully chose the appropriate new set of paper pages for the new year. When I switched years and move the old calendar out and added the new one, I enjoyed copying the birthdays, anniversaries and important dates. While in court getting dates for future appearances, I liked paging through my planner and seeing how busy I was. I liked having a full calendar.

Then one day I discovered PDAs, the smart part of today's smart phones. For a while I kept a paper day planner and my electronic organizer. Over time, I came to trust my technology and put away the paper planners. I liked the fact that with an electronic organizer, my view each day was neat, my notes were always easy to read and moving items from one day to another was a breeze. It was so easy to keep track of things, to move things around and to see what my plans were with the neat text of the PDA. I synced it with my computer and printed out hard copies of certain information once per month.

Today we have computers, laptops, tablets, and smart phones that store your information on the device, in the cloud and between devices. For almost every organizational problem there is an application that solves the problem. I have come to enjoy and trust the organizational marvel that my technology provides. My tablet has my calendars, (each color coded)yes calendars:

* personal
* businesses
* blog advertising
* blog group calendar
* family calendar
* spouse's calendar

I like keeping track of each area of my life in a separate calendar, color coded by purpose. At a glance I know if I am spending the day on my own activities, working for my children or working for another. With my technology it is easy to separate my calendar into many subcategories in order to keep everything organized and separate but combined at the same time. My tablet has my shopping lists broken down by store type and purpose. I use my tablet to keep track of plan for birthday parties, school events and bus schedules. When my children are ill, I set alarms on my tablet to remind me when to take temperatures and when to give out medication.

It is amazing how organized technology allows me to be. When I promise someone I will do something, I put it in the calendar while I am talking about it so I can be sure to do the appropriate prep and follow through. With my technology, I am able to keep large numbers of phone numbers organize, up to date and current. I can keep all the resources I need for blogging, vision boarding or mind mapping in my hand, on my technology. I am simply amazed at how organized I can be with technology. So the question for you this terrific day is what do you love to use technology to keep organized?
