We’re all living and working in a fast-paced world and it’s easy to forget things on your to-do list (or forget the list altogether). How do you keep important tasks front and center?

This week we’re interested in hearing your best reminder-setting tips and tricks. Do you keep it analog and tape a big note to the front door? Use a specific app on your phone to pester you into getting important tasks done? Send email letters-to-myself style reminders?

Whatever technique you use to ensure the important things get noticed in a timely manner, we want to hear about it. Sound off in the comments with your reminder trick–don’t forget to include the name of the app, if you use one–and then check back on Friday for the What You Said roundup.

If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
