How I Use Google Sheets to Organize My Life
I love to be organized. Even more so, I love when my thoughts are organized. I love the ability to reach back into the “file of my mind” and remember something that might enhance my life. So how can I do that so frequently?
I have a working Google Sheet where I house a wide variety of information and thoughts. I can write anything down, anytime, with the Google Sheets app.
Say I’m at an event and I meet someone from Montreal. I’ve been wanting to plan a trip there, and they give me a slew of recommendations. I’m thrilled to have this knowledge, but I can’t possibly remember all of the rec’s by the time I book my travel. So I open my Google Sheets, and add all the info under my Montreal tab. Then, when I actually go, I already have an entire list of personally recommended places to go!
The main things I have organized by tabs in my sheet:
List of San Diego Events by date
Travel recommendations based on city
Topics I want to write on
I could have scribbles all over my notepad, but instead, I have everything organized by subject in one place. It keeps me sane with all the info I need at my fingertips.
