This is off topic, but I wanted to write about it.
In 2013, I had too many of gadgets, apps and calendars (Filofax Personal, Erin Condren, Moleskin planners). To get my day started I had to remember to bring my phone, iPod, ear phones, iPad, Blackberry (work), attach my Fitbit or my body media to my clothing or on me. When I arrived to work, I had to plug in my iPhone, iPod, and iPad. It was too much! To make matters worse, I was using several apps for my workouts and tracking food intake. In addition, I was using a couple of productivity apps.
I am cutting back. I have decided to stick with my Fitbit, and Nike+ for my physical activity. I am going to use Evernote to manage my documents, and Nook and iBook apps for my magazines and books. I am using the Filofax A5 for my calendar. That is it. As much as I like the Moleskin, and Erin Condren, I just cannot keep up with so many calendars.
I hope to have positive results to report on January 15.
