It’s up to you how you manage your day to day tasks. I think it comes down to how you individually prefer to keep organized. Some people will keep a note book, others use sticky notes but for me, I use technology. More about these options later.
What is consistent in my view is how you manage your “work to do.” The following four steps are based on the GTD (Getting Things Done_Dave Allen) principles.
If you can develop a routine around these basic steps, you will find a way to take control of the demands on your time.
