Or to put it another way, how do I avoid bumbling through life never knowing what I'm doing? The obvious, easy answer is to develop some mental discipline so I can either remember what I said ten minutes ago,or acknowledge that I won't remember it and write it down (or at least make some kind of record of it). But I've thought that before, said that before, sworn blind that I'd do it before, and it hasn't happened.
Whatever, I have to do something. I'm sick of spending my life remembering important stuff when it's too late, and letting people down because of it. if you have any bright ideas about what I could feel free to let me know. I may even respond... if I remember *sigh*
