How can I improve my ability to remember appointments?
You want to have an instant picture come to mind. Making associations for appointments. If it's a one o'clock appointment, you want to see the person who's coming into your office at one o'clock and see a big number one connected to them. You can create a system. If it's a four o'clock appointment, you might just see a big four on the person that's coming into your office. Now you don't have to look at your calendar because you might not be close to that calendar when you say, 'who's coming in at four?' now you see the person because the four is on his little T-shirt that he's wearing. So you're setting up a system again. But there are other systems called key systems and queue systems where you can have whole schedule of your day or your week or the month. It's called a visual key system, where you have a whole calendar in your mind where you're assigning numbers to the calendar in picture form.
