Marking your calendar for an important occasion is a tradition that’s been in place for as long as anyone can remember. But not everyone has the time and patience or even the vibe needed to do such anymore and it would be a real thorn in the flesh if you forgot about an important occasion.
The last thing you want to be doing is saving every important date on a cork from a wine bottle but what really is the solution to this problem? The problem with analog calendars, if you’re old enough to even remember those, is that they required you to look at them to work.
That means when you forget to check them, it’s Sayonara to that event, for real. And no one wants to be stuck apologizing for missing a birthday party, forgetting to visit the kids on visiting day, or be left regretting the free milkshake you forgot to cash in on with your punch card. Yeah, that sucks.
However, life is full of constant evolution and one of the testaments to this is the rise of digital calendars. These have made life easier and you don’t need to worry about having to check the calendar on the wall (seriously, who remembers those anymore?)
They help you with reminders, timers, public holidays, to-do lists and so on. The best part is the calendar is always within reach and you don’t have to be scared of forgetting anything since basically your phone is always with you.
Digital calendars may be better at reminding you to do things, but they still can’t read your mind. Pro tips like setting reminders and marking important dates on your phone’s calendar, have gone a long way in reducing the stress in worrying about forgetting an event.
This gives you time to focus on other things, knowing fully well that you would get a reminder without having to run from the bed to the calendar on the wall. The absolute dream.
