Being naturally disorganized, I've seen the differences between myself and those naturally organized creatures ..... they keep track of everything whether on paper, electronic or in a cloud. But you and I, the "striving-to-be-functionally-organized", still lose info! Why?
Because we love all those fun new things and we act like that cartoon dog who's so easily distracted by squirrels: ohh Dropbox, that'll be perfect...ohhh Evernote, that's the one that'll save me...oh my, iCloud you are the best...Oh yes, that new daytimer will keep me on task.....oh wow, how did I live without (insert latest technology or product)!?!?!?
Yes, I still struggle to keep on top of all info I want to save! For me, less is more! I use Notes on my phone to keep info I need to recall. And I use the notes sections on Outlook to keep people-specific notes and info. And lastly, I use the Carbonite app to access ALL the files on my computer.
Strive for less and you'll find much less distraction and reduce the loss of info.
Just an opinion from one functionally-organized-striver to another 😊
