The Forgotten Things

Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night thinking about something that you promised someone you would do with the realization that you totally forgot to do what you said you would do?

Things like promising to connect a colleague with a resource at a post-secondary institution or your promise to visit a sick relative on the weekend or remembering that you have borrowed a book from a friend and not only have you not returned it to them but you have also not even read it?

What about that cheque you need to write and you have not written it because, well, who has cheques anymore!

Does this ever happen to you? Yeah, me neither. But what about you? This must have happened to you. What strategies do you use to deal with these situations?
