PROBLEM: I have these actual things that I need to remember to give/show to someone or take somewhere. I can’t remember to do them! On the rare occasion that I do remember, I have no idea where I put the item.
SOLUTION: Make a note in your calendar on a specific day to do the action. Put the item that is connected to the action in a spot specifically designed for calendar items. This can be a bin, box, basket, or shelf.
HINT: This idea works well for actions that are going to happen well into the future – weeks and months away.
