You've got a lot going on. And sometimes, no matter how many sticky notes you slap on your monitor, phone messages you leave for yourself, or pseudo meetings you put on your calendar, you still forget some very important things you need to do.
It's understandable. You're busy. But there's one last thing to try: Remindr, a service that helps you hassle yourself about things you want to remember to do.
Setting up the service is easy. There's no need to login or create and account. Simply enter a topic and the date and time - in 24 hour format. Don't worry about Greenwich Mean Time computations. Remindr uses your local time to schedule the message.
Once your topic and time are complete, you can choose from a variety of ways to have the service ping you: Twitter, Jabber/Gtalk, email, SMS, or all of the above. So, no matter where you are, it's highly likely you'll get the reminder about that thing you were supposed to do.
I put Remindr through a number of tests and each time it performed flawlessly, virtually tapping me on the shoulder at exactly the moment I needed it. Simple and effective. What more could you want?
Remindr was designed, coded, and deployed in less than 48 hours as part of the Rails Rumble, an annual contest designed to challenge Ruby on Rails developers to build simple Rails apps in a short period of time.
No doubt, you've already been planning a few New Year's resolutions about "doing a better job of managing your time." So, why not get a jump on it? To start hassling yourself about all those things you need to do, visit Remindr.
