While reading through the comments to one of my recent posts, I was interested to see that several of you keep separate planners for work and personal use.
I used to use an Outlook calendar for work-related calls and my Space 17 for face-to-face meetings and personal appointments. Then I had to switch to Gcal for one of my freelance clients, or, I should say, I had to start using Gcal to manage calls and meetings with that client. Another client I work with uses one of those online project-management systems. Now I need my Space 17 to coordinate across my work calendars and make sure the appointments on one don’t clash with those on the others.
That works all right, but lately, I’ve been wondering if I should consolidate and use just one electronic calendar, plus a paper one. I don’t like the interface of Gcal as well as I do that of Outlook, but the fact that it’s cloud-based makes things easier, and I’m not such an old bird yet that I can’t learn to make it work. Of course, that makes me wonder if I should consolidate my email systems, too, and abandon Outlook altogether. Too many choices!
Does anyone else suffer from electronic calendar overload syndrome (ECOS)?
