KINDA HACK #14
Organize Your Year With a Family Calendar
Ah, January. The start of a fresh year, when you haven’t yet forgotten to be somewhere you were supposed to be, or do something you were supposed to do.
on the calendar
Before you spoil 2021’s perfect track record with a forgotten pediatrician’s appointment, take 15 minutes to get your family calendar ready for the year ahead. Your school or district should have sent home key dates, like holiday breaks, professional development days, and the end of the year. If you haven’t already, take the time to mark those in your family calendars now, and fill in any other important dates you don’t want to miss, too. It might feel like a pain, but you’ll be glad you did them all at once, and you’ll save yourself from middle-of-the-night wake-ups thinking, “Wait a minute, wasn’t I supposed to do something...yesterday??”
