I spend a lot of time thinking about all the things I forget if I don’t write them down — ideas, birthdays, phone numbers, even simple work-related tasks like emailing a client or calling a source for a story.
The other day, though, I started thinking about the things I’m good at remembering. Some of them are small, and some are random, but it’s an interesting exercise, anyway. I always make grocery lists, but I’m pretty good at remembering what’s on them if I forget to take them with me to the store. I remember my appointments, provided I know what day it is — no small feat, for a new parent. (Calls are another matter.) I remember most of my largest overarching to-dos, and I never forget to pay my bills.
Anyway, think positive, right? Are there things you always remember?
