If you're anything like me, you sometimes forget to check your day-planner on an hourly basis. You might miss a reminder on your smartphone, and those good-intentioned Post-Its just aren't cutting it when they fall behind your desk and you miss something important. If you have a can't-miss meeting, appointment or reminder, write it on your bathroom mirror (at eye level) in dry-erase marker. You'll see the reminder first thing in the morning and it'll be fresh in your mind as you get ready for the day. If you're too groggy to look at your bathroom mirror with any kind of concentration, write the message on another mirror in the house you know you'll look at...or the rear-view mirror in your car.
