Your handmade invites for Carrie’s wedding has to be complete by the 6th, and the 4th is John’s piano recital. Oh crap, today your sponsored blog post is supposed to go live!

When we forget certain events we tend to over commit to other projects and it doesn't end well. Hang up a calendar where you can’t miss it. Whiteboards tend to be the best as you can erase and add on whenever our ever changing schedules shift.

Your calendar can be as traditional or unconventional as you'd like as long as the dates are there.
