I am forgetful

How often do you forget where you put things. I haven't put the keys in the freezer yet but it's almost as bad. I put things down then just can't find them. Usually it's because I am multi tasking which as I get older I find is a very bad way to be. I have to learn to just do one thing at a time and not let myself get distracted. Any ideas on how to do this?

I can't really give some ideas about this! Because I am exactly the same! There are times I have to get a groceries and I will write a long list and all of a sudden I will be in the supermarket and guess what? I don't have my list with me. It happen to me many times with keys or mobile phone also. Thank you for posting this so that maybe I can get some idea also.

it seldom happens with me because i keep things in an order.if you arrange things in a definite order and make sure that you return it to proper place, you will never find it difficult to spot your things.although this may seem to take more time and effort it is worth as you dont have to run around the house searching for your things.

Robinz do you live with anyone else? That is one of my bigest problem, I have places for everything but not everybody puts them back there. Then we're all in trouble.

hmm..let them know that you keep things in an order and it means a lot to you.iam sure your family/friends will understand and will catch up with u although it will take them some time to realise the difference.

i am not old,, but i usually forget the things.. i always forget my pen, key, and other things.. it is very big problem to me.. sometime i forget to pay the money after shopping. yes i listen from somewhere that to recover this problem you have to do meditation or yoga. but i don't like it.. yes now i use some tips like i never keep any pen with me all the time. i use now a key hanger for my bikes key..

hi savypat, forgetting where i have put something is my daily routine . when i try to fix something, just as simple as tightening a screw, i will spend 10 minutes to look for the screw driver and 10 seconds to do the main work . yes you are right. focus and attention is the secret. it is advised that we should really realize what we are doing. we should really present whenever and wherever we are.
