The Power of Frequent Updates and Reminders

December 09, 2015

Several of us have busy schedules and often forget important deadlines. Despite the advancements in technology and the introduction of smartphones and tablets, many of us still seem to miss out on crucial tasks and deadlines. Therefore, it goes to show that no matter how organised you are, you will not get things done unless you don’t have a reliable system of frequent updates and reminders.

Most of us still write our grocery lists down, only to realise when you reach at the store that you forgot your list back home. Setting frequent reminders and updates will enable you to keep a track of all your activities and deadlines. When it comes to running your business, your mind might be submerged with a number of daily activities along with deadlines that you might have to meet in the near future.

Despite employing business professionals, there still might be certain tasks that aren’t covered. For instance, filing tax returns well before the deadline is extremely crucial. If, however, you forget to do so, you might run into some serious trouble and face necessary fines from the tax authority. To avoid such problems, it is best to find a software solution that offers frequent updates and reminders. If you think buying software is expensive, you might want to consider the next best alternative, which is your phone. All of us, own smartphones, which are equipped with cloud technologies, enabling you to access all kinds of information whenever, wherever you need it.

Setting up reminders and updates will ensure that you get all your daily tasks done in time and if there are any deadlines regarding legal paperwork, a reminder will make sure you have it completed before time. You need to develop a habit of setting frequent updates and reminders so that you can productively keep a track of everything and stay ahead. The power of frequent updates and reminders is irreplaceable and they act as triggers that remind you now and then that you have to accomplish a certain task or meet an upcoming deadline. Take for instance a basic example, when you are cooking in the kitchen and you have something in the oven, setting a timer or an alarm clock will ensure that you take out the dish on time before you burn anything or have a dangerous accident.

Similarly, setting automated updates can help remind you about important things which you would otherwise forget had there not been a trigger to indicate accordingly. It is highly recommended to set reminders for just about everything from your tax filing dates, performing necessary legal paperwork to checking your insulin if you are diabetic and taking the dog out for a walk. Once you harbour the habit of setting frequent reminders and updates, you will never forget to do things when they need to be done. You can set reminders and updates anywhere you like, whether it is on your smartphone, desktop, tablets or calendars as long as it is accessible and viewable.
