need a reminder?

Do you ever forget to do something and wish you had gotten a reminder about it? It’s quite common to become so involved that you forget about other tasks you were supposed to complete.

You’re not the only one, and you have a few options if you want to improve in that area. Here are some of your options.

1. Use a calendar
You can use Google Calendar, 30boxes, or a host of other calendars to remind you via e-mail or get a text message sent right to your cell phone.

2. Use RSS
If you don’t know what RSS is, this probably isn’t for you, but if you are already using an RSS aggregator, this may be the way to go. It’s neat to see a new application of an existing, useful technology. The service is called Reminder Feed. It’s free, and it delivers recurring reminder messages right to your feed reader.

3. Hassle me
This isn’t a request for you to inundate me with phone calls or e-mails, this is a service from the UK allowing you to add items you want to be hassled (or reminded) about. You just type in the text you want to receive, how often it should occur, and the e-mail address to send it to.

So, if you want to be reminded of an appointment, a regular task like taking out the trash, someone’s birthday or any number of other things you are apt to forget, you don’t have any excuses for forgetting.
