A piece of paper can work wonders....

Many of my clients and friends are impressed with my memories. Though I have thousands of clients and friends, I seldom fail to remember what I had promised. Be it their birthdays, anniversaries, appointments or any requests, I will try not to forget. These friends are wondering how I could be so systematic and a detail person. To be honest! As I aged along, my memory is actually getting weaker and slower. Can't blame Mother's Nature because Nature has to play it's part. BUT! I have a simple way to overcome my ageing memories

To remember one thing could be easy but to remember few tasks could be difficult. Just imagine on any day, I could be receiving many phone calls. And on each call, my friends could be relating many messages to me. They could be calling to fix appointments, requesting favours, enquiring their policies details, inviting me for a dinner, somebody are getting sick or little darling is asking for a date with me. To try to remember all these in one mind would definitely make one go crazy. To ease my brain, I always carry a piece of paper no matter where I go and I would write all the necessary on this miracle white paper. Simple as that! And at the end of the day, I transfer all these words into my planner. I had been practising this method ever since when I was a student and it works very well for my life. To me, why crack your mind when you could write it down. 

Food for thought - "All I need is a sheet of paper and something to write with, and then I can turn the world upside down"Friedrich Nietzsche
