The reason I am even thinking about this is because I just received a text from the girl who is coordinating the gift. I automatically picked up my planner and wrote on Saturday's date: "Bring Cash for Carol's Gift".
Done. The only way this won't get taken care of is if I fail to look at my calendar on Saturday. I take that back, I have been known to look at a task and think "I have to do this" and then don't think about it again. My calendar task should prompt me to do something. In this case, I backed up the task with an alert on my calendar/phone for Sunday morning, about at hour before Sunday School starts - plenty of time to go by the ATM if the task was not done on Saturday. You have to do whatever it takes!
- Write everything in your planner.
- Look at your planner everyday - multiple times if necessary
