June has 32 days, right?
by Wordsmitty ✍️
Forgetfulness. Now there's a blog topic we can all get into. Bloggers are always looking for inspiration to write or procrastinate. What better excuse topic is there to cover both? When you're finding it hard to allocate blame, Bingo. There's the old noodle blip.
Old or young, sometimes things just slip through the cracks. You get too busy, or too tired, or too distracted to even check the to do list until tomorrow which seems to always be the day after today. But blogs understand that even if your conscience won't. We'll give guilt blogging a go in a future article.
Now I'm sure that your muse had nothing to do with it. They never do unless you're getting an award or something. They do have selective memory or, at least, selective interpretation of writing events. I think they hang out with ego a lot. Not that they ignore compassion or adventure. It's just that they skip the memory files occasionally, too. Dusty dim area of the past. Muses are all for the future.
Speaking of the future, forgetfulness would be a thing of the past if we could see and control the future better. Think of it. If you knew the future, you'd see that you did remember everything, so that it would be corrected and you wouldn't have forgotten! Of course, if you forget to check the future, ... Maybe little more work is needed on that time machine.
Time is really the cause. It can go by too fast, and you can't stop it, so it looks like you forgot. Slow it down, and you'll probably remember. And if you remember in time, you haven't forgotten.
That brings up the real issue here, remembering. If you don't ever remember or someone tells you that makes you remember, than you wouldn't know you've forgotten. So, in essence, you haven't forgotten if it isn't noticed?
Great logic the above. Something we all should be using more of these days. You could probably write a whole article on it.

How to manage not forgetting. The obvious here is that you need to remember everything. That way nothing is forgotten.
Oh. So you're wondering how you do that. Here some ideas in no particulr order or reason:
1 Memory exercises and tricks used for names when meeting someone for the first time.
2 To do lists (I've heard lots of people do this ).
3 Auto alerts from your favorite electronic device (Annoyingly it goes off all the time for some reason ).
4 Personal (living) assistant or two (always good to have a backup ).
5 Hovering mother, mother-in-law, or nagging spouse .
WDC does have a blog reminder that's been covered before. I'd link where you can set/unset it if I hadn't forgotten where.
