There are so many things that seem so important. I try to write as little down as possible, since I know I seem to never look at what I write down once I write it down. Food journals, and diaries are a great tool when used properly.
Do you look back in your journal if you've had a gain for the week? I certainly never did.
Do you write a grocery list out every time you go to the grocery store? I try to, but I always seem to pick up so much more than the milk and bread that usually is the only thing on the list.
What are important things to write down. I'll tell you one very important thing to write down. When you are scheduled to work! I have work a salaried job for so long now that I never "punch" in the morning and never worry about my hours, since I know I always work over 40 hours. So, when I started working for WW and have been begged to sub meetings more than I care to, I thought I could remember it all.
Well, it happened. I forgot! This morning, I woke up franticly hoping that I was subbing the Thursday meetings this week...no such luck. I checked the one place I knew it was written down (in the email that I got sent asking to sub) and unfortunatlely it was last week, July 10! OMG!!!
I was more upset at myself than anything else and the leader/receptionist who happens to be the location coordinator took care of the meeting and actually asked me to sub again instead of getting mad at me.
I have been completely sick to my stomach all day knowing that I totally messed up. Writing things down is definitely a good thing, and believe me, I have written down EVERYTHING today. Some things need to be written down and some things are just not so important. Writing down appointments will be on the top of my list of things to write down from now on.
