My hammer must be broken."

Activity 1

Create a personal Calendar

Step 1
Go into your calendar and spend some time entering in your weekly schedule as reoccurring events.  Remember to add appropriate end dates.

Step 2

Review your real two week calendar, be it paper,  PDA, or whatever is available (hopefully its not on an Outlook calendar on a computer far away from here!).  Add as many one-time events as you can.  Add reminders (and invitees) as relevant.

Step 3
Review the calendar regularly, and then forget about it!

Activity 2 (time permitting)
