Do you do a weekly review?
Since I've been doing it, I feel much less stressed and can usually stay on top of things better that tend to surprise me (upcoming birthdays, etc).
I've tweaked quite a few weekly review checklists and made one that I really like.
I keep a copy of it in my planner and try to do it on Saturday or Sunday to review, reflect, and plan ahead. Click the picture above, or this link and download a copy for yourself and let me know what you think!
