Calendars – Do They Control Our Lives OR Help Us Stay In Control of our Lives?
I have to admit that I have felt a bit lost since my computer crashed and I lost my Palm Pilot calendar. I did however, (thank goodness) print out my calendar and update my palm pilot before I took my computer into the computer hospital. They supposedly saved all my info, but my palm info seems to be gone. The connector cord from my palm to my computer has bit the dust too. So I have my print out calendars and I do still have the info on my palm..but I can’t sync it with my computer any longer.
I have been trying to figure out another system that I can have my calendar and contacts on my computer but sync to my new blackberry. I am trying google but haven’t synced yet…and don’t really like the calendar. I don’t want to spend money for one…or very little money if its something great. My husband keeps telling me Outlook, but I look at it and it cost several hundred dollars.
I think my calendar does control my life! It has everything on it. Because I tend to live by schedules and routines….when those are thrown into chaos I feel like my life is in a bit of chaos. Is that right? Probably not. Should I be flexible and free? Maybe…but then I will miss appointments, not have phone numbers when I need them and with my personality I would only be crabby, not free.
Does your calendar control you? Do you live by it? What system do you use and do you have any good suggestions for me on a calendar with contacts that can sync from my computer to my blackberry?
