"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the result of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other people's opinion drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have to courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." ~ Steve Jobs

I personally use my phone as my way of getting organised. I use my Calendar App that comes alreasy installed on iPhones but I also know of a few other calendar apps that could be useful and you can easily find them on the App Store. Along with the Calendar App I also use Evernote. I use this for note taking, listing tasks the need to be done, but also planning blog posts and other bits and pieces. I prefer to organise my day to day events like this because I know without a doubt that my phone is going to be everywhere with me. I can trust myself to have it on me anyway and it also saves me from carrying extra stuff with me throughout the day.
I hope this is helpful to some of you and especially to those who feel that there is a bit of pressure to having everything done at once, it gets like that sometimes and we've all experienced it!
