Mobile Devices Aid Multi-tasking
An increasing number of people are using their mobile devices and calendar programs to schedule meeting reminders to keep up with all of their activities. There are also a growing number of programs and tools being developed to help with multi-tasking; enabling us to better track and prioritize our work and family activities.
Scheduling Reminders Helps
I don’t know about you but if I schedule reminders for myself for tasks or meetings then I am more apt to complete the task, plan for, and be on time for meetings.
In addition, many of my coaching clients report increased success in accomplishing goals if they use reminders to schedule actions needing completing on their to do lists.
More People Will Read a Text than Email
Given the growing usage of texting, and the increased likelihood of responding to a text vs. an email, I searched for a text reminder service that would be useful and Ohdontforget.com seemed to work the best.
Ohdontforget.com Text Service
Text messages scheduled through Ohdontforget.com are delivered at the date and time you specify, unless you schedule for “now,” which will send the message immediately.
The Ohdontforget.com service also allows you to remind others by text about an event at a specific date and time.
The service can be used in many ways such as to queue up birthday reminders, or to have your to–do list items sent to you throughout the day.
There is a free version of the service which is limited to sending text messages, and the premium version of Oh, Don’t Forget lets you set up recurring messages/to do lists, review message logs, use up to160 characters, import an address book, and has no ads. It costs $4.95 per month or $47.50 annually.
Text Instead of Email
If you are overloaded with email- you may want to try texting yourself instead with Oh, Don’t Forget and see if it works for you.
