Lots of us keep ‘To Do’ lists, and rely on them as a way to organize our activities throughout the day. Often the creation of these lists is a somewhat slapdash affair—when you realize the need to do something, you jot a note about it in your notebook or phone. That inevitably leads to forgetting things.
