I have a note on my phone that reminds me to listen to music.
I have always loved music, and I am always happier when I listen, yet somehow I forget to stop and put something on.
This happens every single day.
Most of us have something like this—a simple thing that makes us happy. And yet we can’t rely on our busy minds to remind us to take the time to do it.
A simple trick that works is to leave yourself a note.
A sticky note on your fridge or bathroom mirror, or a digital reminder on the computer you keep in your pocket—anywhere you’ll see it frequently throughout the day.
It is amazing what we forget.
And it is equally amazing how powerful a simple reminder can be.
