So, one of my co-workers uses a notebook (meaning actual pen and paper) to keep track of things she needs to work on and notes about what to do and how and why. She finds it very helpful. For some reason, I'm perpetually amused by how much she writes down. None of this is to say I couldn't help myself by keeping better notes (or perhaps recapturing some of the really good memory I seem to remember having) as evidenced by this exchange today:
her: I just wrote that all down in my notebook for my next to-do list
me: You and you're notebook. I prefer just to forget things at random.
