My system for remembering appointments is not working. I can’t keep up with my kid’s, husband and work schedule. We have a dry erase board at home for the family to write in their activities and I have a calendar in my purse but it is hard to know what is going on any given time when I am at work or running errands. Help!

Use only one calendar. The biggest mistake people make when using planning calendars is to have one for personal, another for the office, and yet another for the family.
Keep professional, personal and family items on one calendar. Use a portable calendar and can carry it with you at all times. It will help to eliminate scheduling conflicts. Encourage your husband and children to also keep their own schedule books.
