All the advice for being less absent-minded assumes a level of present-mindedness(?) that I don't posses. 'Make A List'! Motherfucker, how do I remember to make a list? If I remember to make it, how do I remember to add individual tasks to the list? How do I remember to check the list to see which tasks I have to complete? How do I remember to tick tasks off after I've completed them?
