I desperately need your help!
At the right-hand side of the page, you will see my new poll: "How do you keep track of your schedule?" Please take a second to respond!
This is something I ask all of my interviewees. The answers so far have ranged from:
- "Pen and paper. We didn't even have an answering machine for a long time!" (Chris Schmidt, oboist/librarian who retired from a forty-plus year playing career in 2010)
- "My wife plays in the same orchestra and keeps tracks of rehearsals." (Bassoonist/Software developer Luke Bakken)
- "Multiple calendars melded together on my iPhone through Google apps" (Bassoonist/Tech guru Jacob Smith)
Now it's not really doing the trick. I used to be good about putting things on both Outlook (work calendar) and in my date book (gig calendar), but this system is no longer working. I will put something on Outlook and not in my datebook and vice-versa. Verizon wants to charge me full-price for an iPhone because I recently re-upped my contract and "upgraded" my phone and did not choose a smartphone. I do have an iPod touch but there are many reasons why this is not a good option for me.
What tools do you use to keep track of your schedule? Please let me know in the poll and in the comments! Thank you!
