How to Use Your Calendar More Productively
Add more notes and meta-info than just the name of the event when you′re using the calendar.
Copy my simple system to create book summaries so you can remember what you read months, even years, after reading.
These extra fields are really useful and you should take advantage of them.
I had plenty of situations where I had a call with someone and as I was going to call that person, I didn’t have this contact’s number anywhere in sight.
This sort of frustration can be easily addressed by adding that extra piece of information to the event on your calendar.
Here are some useful pieces of information you should add:
Phone numbers: I like adding country codes. You can use Skype names too
Addresses: for lunches, dinners, or any place you’ll be heading towards
Misc notes: this can be anything, such as what to wear, what to bring, conference call agenda, and such. Anything that will remind you of important information for this event
